Another Blue Beauty
We have just posted a piece about Kéknyelű indigenous varietal with some interesting facts. This female-only grape is grown exclusively in Badacsony wine region, where several volcanic mountains give a touch of extra taste to the wines. On Tuesday we presented Borbély Kéknyelű Selection 2018, and now we would like to introduce a new release from Sabar Wine House from Sabar Hill.
Finally it has arrived!
How can you recognize a good wine? When you want to go back and buy a second case, you realize that the wine is sold out. That was the situation with Sabar Kéknyelű thus if you want to taste it, you had better hurry…
“French ladies with subtle beauty have the rare talent to wear perfume so elegantly as this Sabar Kéknyelű “Kőmagas” 2020 wears the notes of barrel ageing. When the sun kisses the skin leaving a cute freckle. Stylish restraint is attractive, it penetrates all your sensations. Refined acidity appears followed by mineral and saline tones to deepen the experience. The inner value is what keeps it, perhaps for years…”
Only 4826 bottles are available. Now only 4825… Oh, only 4824…
The Master Sommelier’s choice
Decanter magazine’s recent Hungarian supplement presents the 30 best buys beyond Tokaj picked by three experts with great knowledge of Hungarian wines: Caroline Gilby MW, Oz Clarke OBE and Tamás Czinki MS. Sabar Olaszrizling Birtokbor (Estate wine) 2019 was picked by Tamás Czinki, the first Hungarian Master Sommelier living in the UK, and the wine ranked No8 in the list of the 30 best buys.
“Clean and youthful wine with zesty citrus and stone fruit character, delicate nutty notes with almond in the aftertaste. Classic example of a good-quality Olaszrizling, with a rounded mouthfeel and persistent finish.”
Sabar wines are available in several countries:
Belgium (Qwine), Italy (Alternavino), Slovakia (Beer&wine Depot PWR s.r.o.), UK (Novel Wines, The Wine Society)
