3 Sauvignon Blanc wines of Hungary

3 charming Hungarian Sauvignon Blanc wines

The “asparagus and Sauv Blanc time” of the year

Our wine educator used to say that Sauvignon Blanc is a variety easy to recognize even for beginners. It is true, and how delicious that revelation is! Though there is a trend to focus on local grapes and rediscover ancient varieties, it is nice to have stunning guest grapes. And guests should be treated well: we give them great soil, plenty of sunshine and loving care. Taste Sauvignon Blanc wines from different wine regions to discover the differences! Dubicz from Mátra wine region, Koch from Hajós–Baja and Frittmann from Kunság. This is the season of dishes made of fresh asparagus – an ideal pair of Sauvignon.

In Hungary there are 957 hectares under Sauvignon Blanc (source: HNT 2023), it is the 14th most planted white variety (out of the 125 white grapes planted in Hungary).

Welcome to the largest wine region in Hungary, Kunság! The Frittmann brothers, true pioneers, revived the region’s reputation with fashionable wines. János Frittmann’s accolade as Winemaker of the Year in 2007 and the estate’s prestigious “Winery of the Year” title in 2015 underscore their commitment to excellence. Though they concentrate on indigenous varieties like Irsai Olivér, Ezerjó, Cserszegi Fűszeres, or Kadarka, others alike, some international grapes are also cultivated. Complete your experience with a stay in their charming guesthouse, where every room beckons with warmth and comfort.
“In keeping with the Kunság wine region, our version showcases its fruity side: the nose is reminiscent of luscious tropical fruits such as passion fruit and lime. On the nose, this lemon-coloured wine is strikingly refreshing, with citrus and herbal notes accompanied by yellow-fleshed fruit. The body is halfway between light and medium, the acids are balanced and the alcohol content is appropriate for the type of wine. On the palate, small bubbles of CO2, citrus aromas and a fine spicy character balance the sweet fruit of musk melon and pineapple. Recommended as an aperitif, with fish, chicken and cheese dishes.”
The retail price on the winery webshop is only 1900 HUF / 4.9 EUR!
