Electricity bottled – Nyakas Irsai Olivér 2021

I rarely buy irsai, but when I do I usually go for one of the most popular ones, the Nyakas. Just like the 2019, the newest release is again a surprisingly good white wine.

Released as a Nouveau wine, it doesn’t get crisper and fresher than this. Flowers and grapey notes jump out of the glass, it’s aromatic and so bright. Leaner, high acid style, quite dry, light on alcohol (only 11,5%) but not on intensity. Full of energy and flavor. Highly recommended.

Rating: good, 85 points.
Price: around 1800 HUF (€ 5) in Hungary.
Stockists: you can get it everywhere, from supermarkets to wine shops like Bortársaság.
Tasted: December, 2021.
Drinking window: now-2024.
Source: own purchase.
