Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
A daring Hungarian sparkling wine; the head winemaker, Sándor Mérész has singled out Sauvignon Blanc as the variety he’s been experimenting with the most in recent years. After three still interpretations from 2018, the time was right to truly question local conventions and make a sparkling wine in 2019.
