Little Princess with power to enchant you
Krisztina Csetvei’s wines in more and more places & countries
Királyleányka (literally ‘Little Princess’) is an indigenous grape variety of the Carpathian Basin. This is the wine in the picture. The lady in the cover photo is Krisztina Csetvei – a dedicated and talented winemaker, a “perpetum mobile” activist, a hyper creative brain, a wife and mother with a huge heart.
Kriszti has just announced happily that her Királyleányka 2021 is available at Zengő wine bar, a trendy meeting place in Budapest. The grape was harvested by hand under Vértes mountanis, between Mór and Csókakő, in a breathtaking place. After gentle pressing vinification was quick, fermentation and ageing took place in stainless steel under controlled temperature. “Pale straw yellow colour. Fresh, medium intense nose with yellow flesh fruits. The palate features fresh grapey flavours, tropical fruits (mango, papaya, lime) and white flowers. Great balance of body and alcohol. A light hearted, cheerful wine with peach in the aftertaste.”

Belgium and UK, Csetvei is coming!
Csetvei wines are available in several countries:
Ezerjó, the flagship grape of Mór wine region, and during Hungarian Wine Summit event Mór producers presented their Ezerjó and other wines to the invited trade members. As a consequence, amphora aged Csetvei Ezerjó will very soon be available in Belgium at niche importer Roidesrois.
While Belgians can enjoy one of the best white wines in Europe, barrel aged Csetvei Ezerjó will be available in the United Kingdom at Malux Hungarian Wine & Spirits. Barrel aged Ezerjó shows the most complex face of the variety: “Hazelnut, floral notes, peach, spices and citrus. Delicately mineral. Lively and vibrant.”
