Made with the méthode traditionelle of Champagne, this fine sparkling wine from the Alföld region of Hungary is a blend of three grapes: Generosa, Ezerjó, and Riesling, none of which is a traditional Champagne grape variety but whose blend creates a balanced and original bubbly.
Straw colour, persistent fine mousse. Restrained, elegant nose with a hint of quince and lees notes. Lively acidity creates a firm sense of structure on the fully dry palate. Not so fruit-driven, this wine is more about mouthfeel and refreshing acidity. A delicate, clean and bright drink with a touch of lemon and green apple.
Try as an aperitif, or serve with light Asian noodle dishes or a herb risotto.

A delicious oven-baked honey and mustard chicken breast with a cornucopia of flavours courtesy of five Great Taste Award winners. The beguiling flowery taste of the lime honey combines perfectly with the nutty flavour of the sunflower oil and the slight-acidity of the mustard, all given a mouth-watering twist by the addition of sweet paprika smoked on aromatic beech wood, as well as a bit of hot paprika for that irresistible kick.
This simple recipe makes for a quick wholesome dinner, ideal for coeliacs and lovers of oriental flavours. Just make sure that you keep an eye out for fridge raiders if you decide to take the leftovers into the office the next day.
