First I've seen of a Hungarian Rose'. Does it give you a sense of "Hungarian-ness" or is it just a good Pinot/Merlot/CF rose' blend? In Venice recently, I enjoyed a rose' of Lagrein from up north. Deep pink color, and rich flavors typical of the grape. Spoke loudly of the region.

Paul- I can't really say it did. I have to say that I don't have enough experience with Hungarian wines outside of Tokaji and this winery, Apatsagi. Being that it was made in a very clean style with a blend of the mainstream varietals, if tasted it blind I would not be able to tell you that it was Hungarian. I can tell you that the sheer value of wines (gewurtz, riesling, white blends) from this winery is a main draw for me to them with most of their wines falling between $10 and $15 retail and being absolutely delicious. I have however had some dry still wines from Hungary made from the Juhfark grape, which are in a category of their own and most certainly are wines with "Hungarian-ness". Apatsagi makes a Pinot as well, but it kind of just falls under that "cool climate" style that is being produced in many colder/high altitude regions around the world.
