Like a Hungarian Grüner Veltliner: Bakonyi Csavargó 2019

Photo taken from the producer’s webpage
Not a pure Grüner Veltliner actually as it’s blended with some local grapes (30% Hárslevelű, 10% Olaszrizling and 10% Királyleányka), but it speaks the GrüVe language for sure.

With it’s steely and precise style this is more akin to crisp Austrian whites than to most Hungarian peers. It has great intensity and a bone dry, tight palate. Focused and bright but not too lean. Slightly aromatic, showing grapey, citrus and pollen notes. A well made, balanced and refreshing midweek quaffer. Alc.: 11,5%.
