What was your biggest surprise about Hungarian wines?

Having been brought up with Bulls Blood, my biggest surprise after that was that Hungarian wines were good to drink!  Then a visit to the Royal Tokaji Wine Company in its very early days introduced me to this historic wine and many visits and many more tasting since have shown me the whole spectrum of its qualities, from Essencia to the now justifiably popular Dry Furmint.
