The color (and style) of this wine depends on you, the viewer. Is this an orange wine or a rose? Answer: it can be both. It is sort of both styles at the same time. This wine is made from 100 percent Szürkebarát (Pinot Gris), a white grape variety which has pink-colored skin. Orange wines are, essentially, white wines which are produced using the red-wine method of skin maceration. Since the skin of Pinot Gris is pink, the wine didn’t turn orange in color, but instead turned pink. This wine was spontaneously fermented and barrel-aged, an uncommon practice for both rosés and orange wines. This wine is named for the Mura River, which creates a triple border between Hungary, Slovenia, and Croatia in the Zala region. The soil here is a mixture of gravel, clay, and limestone, which are the sediments left by the river. Zala is a fairly unknown wine region—even within Hungary—since it is mainly hobby winemakers, and just a few commercial wineries. Among the commercial wineries, Bussay is the best-known, and produces the best quality wines. So, is this wine orange or rosé? We’ll leave that for you to decide!
