Tasting Notes

Lovely bouquet of lime, flowers and stone fruits with a tantalising brioche aroma adding extra layers of complexity. Crisp and ripe at the same time with vibrant citrus fruits on the palate and rich notes of ageing on the lees. Its character is all about freshness, with a perfectly balanced structure, lively acids and refined details marking this as the most outstanding sparkling wine of Kreinbacher Estate. Subtle bubbles allow the minerality of the furmint grapes to shine, while the gentle mousse provides a long aftertaste. This is not just an exceptional sparkling wine for special occasions, but the drink of choice for those who seek the best at all times.

Food Pairing Recommendation

This dry sparkling wine is great on its own, allowing you to fully appreciate its taste. It also goes very well with caviar, smoked salmon and oysters. Its creamy fruitiness makes a delicious pairing for soft cheese and mascarpone, as well as crêpes and strawberry sponge cakes.

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

It is a place where a rich alluvial subsoil meets the perfect micro-climate, creating the ideal conditions for cultivating grapes of outstanding minerality. The first sparkling wines were introduced in 2014, opening a new chapter in the history of the region that has seen the Kreinbacher Estate become the most decorated Hungarian sparkling wine maker. Crafted by a team of in-house experts and renowned outside consultants, each bottle is a revelation, as the unparalleled aroma of the grapes is masterly developed through the méthode traditionnelle approach, creating stunning vintages worthy of the highest international awards.
