An intense and complex dry white wine cuvée, crafted from typical Hungarian grape varieties. It is an aromatic and vivacious new blend from the famous Eger wine region. On the nose there are distinct notes of pear, peach and gooseberry complemented by white floral aromas, vanilla and a hint of green herbs. The characteristics of the terroir are echoed by resplendent notes of ripe fruits and vanilla on the palate, with an intense mineral touch. A complex and balanced structure, this is a velvety soft wine, with a deep and exciting flavour. Taste a glass of this sophisticated wine for a unique experience.
