2021 Csókaszolo, Bussay
It is a rare and hard grape to find and indigenous to Hungary - a must taste!
Two-thirds of the wine is aged for 10 months in previously-used oak cask
One-third of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks.
The wine is from the Zala region in Hungary, where the Mura river passes through. The river is part of the reason behind the special clay-based soil that makes for a great microclimate for the grapes to grow in. The Csókaszolo grape is indigenous to Hungary and is very rare. But due to the good conditions in the Zala region the variety is able to grow.
The wine has a light colour due to the grapes thin skin yet it maintains its complexity and character, with aromas like cherries, violets and blood orange. The Tannins are smooth and the acidity is vibrant.
