Olaszrizling is no relation of the Riesling you may know. This herby, peachy grape variety finds its home in Hungary, Austria (as Welschriesling) and Croatia (as Grasevina). This wine is under a different label of the winery, the fkt Series, which celebrates the experiments and dreams of the family with small batch releases. There is only 1,900 bottles of this juicy white wine and it's bursting with peach, sweet citrus and herbs. Carefully hand-picked later, at the end of November, the wine is naturally fermented in 1000L Hungarian oak barrels before short maturation in barrel and tank. It's velvety, full and with a substantial finish that reflects its mineral, volcanic terroir.
Pairs beautifully with: Quiche Lorraine with smoky lardons, roasted asparagus, or salmon. It is also a good partner with spicy foods like Pad Thai.
Cheese pairing: Brie, Emmental, or Gruyere.
