ZELNA Organic Vineyard Selection Welschriesling 2021

Winner of a Platinum Medal at the Decanter Awards and commended for its outstanding value, this organic vineyard selection Welschriesling is an excellent introduction to white wines from the Balaton region.

Working with beautifully ripe fruit hand-picked from the limestone Farkó-kő vineyard, this certified organic and vegan wine was fermented at low temperatures to preserve the grapes' incredible freshness and fruitiness.

It opens with a lovely honeyed citrus character that melts into notes of golden apples. A complex palate of tropical fruits and elderflower cordial is rounded out by an appealing flinty, smoky note and a lively acidity. This is an easy-drinking yet layered vintage with real depth of character, not just for warm summer days.

Zelna Winery,Balaton Wine Region - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The story of this small family winery started in 2014 with only a couple of hectares under vine. Since then, they have grown and are now making wines from 15 hectares and three different vineyards spread across prime areas of Northern Balaton. The bedrock of their philosophy is sustainable farming and organic wines, focusing on the native variety best suited to bringing alive this unique terroir, the olaszrizling. While lacking decades of experience, the young and energetic team is eager to experiment and learn more about their plantations with every passing vintage, showcasing the character of their vineyards and the way they see the world around them, organically.
