Super 12 White wines 2023 Hungary

The “Super 12 White” wines

Winewriters’ choice

The 8th selection of the Circle of Hungarian Winewriters took place in December. The conclusion is that more of the lighter, easy to drink wines made it to the Super 12 list, with varieties like Olaszrizling and Grüner Veltliner. Figula Sóskút Olaszrizling 2022 (Balatonfüred) received the Grand Prix in the white category. Three more “Super” wines of the latest selection (in the cover photo): Csetvei RawKa Ezerjó Amfora 2022 (Mór), Holdvölgy Intuition No. 3 Furmint 2018 (Tokaj), Steigler Zöldveltelini Bio 2022 (Sopron). See the full list below.

About the Super 12 selection

It is the 8th edition of the white and red Super 12 lists selected by the Circle of Hungarian Winewriters. The wines are nominated by the member writers and they vote for all the nominees in several rounds. The final part is a blind tasting to choose the Grand Prix winners.

Last year the winewriters founded a special award to commemorate the recently deceased Dr. József Kosárka, a great friend, an enthusiast wine writer and founder and president of the Circle of Hungarian Wine Writers. The award goes to the winery whose wines receive the most nominations – this year the winner is St. Andrea Vineyard in Eger with 5 wines nominated by the members.
