TASTING NOTES

This blend of Olaszrizling, Pinot Gris, Riesling & Sauvignon Blanc is little broader than the norm owing to a warmer vintage. On the nose, there are hints of mint, lemon pie and fresh cucumber. The palate is zesty & salty, with notes of yellow apple and citrus fruit.

Gilvesy winery is located in the outskirts of Lake Balaton, near an ancient dormant volcano, in Hungary. Hungarian expat Robert Gilvesy moved back to his homeland from Canada to start this exciting project involving native grape varieties and volcanic soils. Building on the former Esterházy estate on Szent György Hill, the area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes, where indigenous and international varieties grow organically.

Robert’s absolute admiration for nature and the terroir translates into an immense respect for the environment. By farming using organic practices, the soils and the vines stay healthy. In the winery, by letting nature take its course without controlling the processes, and using local resources, such as Hungarian oak barrels, Gilvesy promotes and protects the Balaton region.
