Description

The classic green-greenish yellow colour oily swirling promises a signifi- cant body. First some hay, green apple, gooseberry appears on the nose, then after a little breathing the ripened grape becomes dominant. On the palate the body is really full as it was promised. Some might lack the range of acidity, but as a whole it is an elegant, respectful, noble wine. The al- cohol level is almost 15%, and this with the barrel ageing gives you a wine for thought, a decent Chardonnay from Hajós–Bajai wine region.
