Sabar Keknyelu 2016, Hungary
Keknyelu is a rare single sex grape variety that means 'Blue Stalk'. The grapes are hand-harvested from the terroir of Komagas vineyard on the southern slopes of Csobanc Mountain in Lake Balaton. Fermented in stainless steel and then partly matured in oak barrel, the resulting wine has a vivid, floral nose and a zesty, crisp palate. Notes of citrus and white flowers with an elegant, long finish.
Pairs beautifully with: Olives, lemon-dressed white fish dishes, vegetable risottos, baked sweet potato or light salads.
Cheese pairing: Soft or crumbly goat's cheese or creamy sheep's milk cheese.
