It is not hard to find out that the name of the wine comes from the union of two words, ‘buborék’ (‘bubbles’) and Babarczi. The base wine is a blend made of Cserszegi Fűszeres, Irsai Olivér and Tramini varieties. “This wine is a unique exciting blend of the peachy acidity and lightness of Tramini, the spicy aromas of Cserszegi Fűszeres and Irsai Olivér’s perfumed, elderflower notes. Fine bubbles caress the palate, while its fragrant fruit character and lively acidity make this wine the refreshing drink of the summer.”
Its retail price is only around 5 euros!
