The Villány region is best known for its concentrated, full-bodied reds. But it also produces refreshing whites, like this 100 percent Olaszrizling. Attila Gere has a lot of experience making these light, fresh, and fruity wines in the region through his partner winery, Gere & Schubert, which focuses exclusively on this style of whites and rosés. The grapes for this wine are sourced from around the Vokány and Nagyharsány towns. They come from 35 year-old vineyards, which yield lower quantities of fruit than usual (around 50 hectoliter per hectare), which is an essential feature of a quality wine. This Olaszrizling was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, so that it would retain freshness and elegance. It has aromas of citrus, pear, and flower blossoms. On the palate, this is a fresh wine, which is soft and smooth due to its low alcohol level (11.5 percent), achieved by harvesting the grapes early (in mid August). This refreshing and easy-drinking wine has the classic almond-like finish that Olaszrizling wines are known for. Enjoy it with grilled fish or vegetable cream soups.
