Aiming for balance
VinoGrapHungary is an Instagram page with peculiar photos of winemakers and wine drinkers. The setting is always different, but something is always flying, bouncing, falling, flowing or splashing in the photos. One of the latest photos feature Krisztina Csetvei in her cellar, commenting that “it is not easy to achieve balance, but I always aim to do so”.
On the pursuit of balance, Krisztina likes experimenting, and both of the above mentioned wines prove her experimental spirit.
Kő–Papír–Olló (Rock–Paper–Scissors) is a family of wines made of Olaszrizling grape, aged in different vessel. Currently Papír (Paper) is available from 2017, a reductive wine with three years of bottle ageing. Creamy and lovely.
The other wine is made of Ezerjó, the iconic indigenous grape variety of Mór wine region, and Krisztina again uses different ageing methods (even amphora). The wine offered in the gift pack was fermented and aged in barrel. “Nutty, floral, peachy, citrusy, spicy and gently mineral. Zesty and vibrant.”
