Vineyard selection Welschriesling from hand-picked grapes, cultivated on the limestone soil of Nivegy Valley. An appealing clear, bright yellow-green hue, and attractive aromas of peach and mango on the nose with smoky notes, developing as the wine starts to breathe. Dynamic wine, as the vibrant acidity combines with a rich minerality from the terroir. Fresh and mineral on the palate, with notes of pears and white flowers, ending in a long finish with a touch honeyed sweetness.

Dobosi Winery, Balaton Wine Region - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
The Dobosi family started to cultivate grape vines in 1721, and with the tradition of winemaking passed from father to son, you can taste the 300 years of expertise. The family works 26.5 hectares in the picturesque Nivegy Valley just north of Lake Balaton, and selectively hand-harvests the ripe fruit. All of their grapes are grown organically, and natural methods are used in the vinification process. Made mostly from native grape varieties that are uniquely suited to the local soil and microclimate, each bottle of Dobosi wine captures the essence of the sunny Balaton Uplands.
