This month we are having fun exploring how different grape varieties are related! This package includes three reds and three whites.
Kékfrankos—Hungary’s most planted red grape—is also a great parent! This package includes the dad (Kékfrankos), along with two of his sons: Zweigelt (from a first marriage with St. Laurent) and Blauburger (from a second marriage with Portugieser). Just like their father, these varieties make juicy and spicy reds that are just ideal for early summer drinking.
Grandmas are the most fun! Sárgamuskotály (Muscat blanc a petit grain) is one of the oldest wine grape varieties of the world! One of her sons, Bouvier, is also a great parent. Bouvier is one of the parents of both the Zenit and Kabar varieties, both of which were developed in Hungary is the 1950-1960s. Expect floral aromas from this family. These are fruity and light wines, with the exception of the oak-aged Kabar, which shows some strength and honeysuckle aromas, just like his dad: Hárslevelű.
