gaeaszthy Etyek poll Sauvignon Blanc

Deep dive in a superb Sauvignon Blanc

Haraszthy Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is every year among the best Sauv Blancs of Hungary – as we reported several times. Cool climate Etyek wine region is ideal for the grape variety, and 2020 vintage has proved its potential again: it received gold medal at the latest edition of VinAgora international wine competition.

A fresh and zippy New World style Sauvignon Blanc. Very intense scent of tropical fruits dominated by passion fruit. On the palate the set of fruits expand with ripe peach and some light vegetal hints. A long and luxurious aftertaste brings fruit flavours to the fore. The characteristic acidity of the Etyek wine region fits nicely to the New World style of this wine.”
