KREINBACHER Brut Classic

A multi-award-winning méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine from the celebrated Kreinbacher Estate.

Attractive fragrance of green apples and citrus with yeasty and floral notes on the nose. The palate has refreshing grapefruit, peach and pineapple, followed by layers of nutty, biscuity flavours and a hint of salt. A firm and persistent mousse, excellent structure and a long, honeyed finish. This is a wine with real depth and character, perfect for transforming any occasion into a special event.


Food pairing

This dry sparkling wine is great to drink on its own when celebrating special moments. It goes well with caviar, smoked salmon and oysters, while its creamy fruitiness makes a delicious pairing for soft cheese and mascarpone.

Serve chilled at 8-11°C and consume at a temperature of 10-11°C


Expert Opinion

Caroline Gilby - Master of Wine - 94 points - Decanter April 2021

This is seriously classy, with bright acidity and fine, lingering bubbles. There’s great fruit intensity, with honey, pear and crisp apple overlaid with biscuit notes. Culminates in a long, refined finish.

Kreinbacher Estate, Somló      

The Kreinbacher Estate was founded on the gentle slopes of the Somló mountain by József Kreinbacher in 2002. A rich alluvial subsoil meets the perfect micro-climate in this volcanic terroir, creating the perfect conditions for cultivating grapes of outstanding minerality. The first sparkling wines were introduced in 2014, opening a new chapter in the region's history that has seen the Kreinbacher Estate become the most decorated Hungarian sparkling winemaker. A team of in-house experts and renowned outside consultants craft each bottle, masterly developing the distinctive aroma of the hand-selected grapes. The results are stunning vintages worthy of the highest international awards and pride of place at any celebration or dinner party.
