Quartus Riesling – Cseri Pincészet

Rhine Riesling is a grape that elicits a fierce passion from many wine-lover’s, including the entire Cseri family. Barnabás Cseri (winemaker Norbert’s son) is also studying winemaking, and has spent time working at the famed Dr. Loosen Winery in the Mosel Valley, Germany. This wine is part of a Riesling series (which includes six wines) that the family produces every year. Each Riesling in the series has different characteristics (one is a late harvest, for example, and the others vary in terms of weight and intensity). Rhine Riesling (Rajnai Rizling, as it’s called in Hungarian) is one of the most versatile grape varieties there is. The grapes can be harvested very early in order to produce sparkling wines or very light whites. Or, if the grapes are picked later in the season (when they are perfectly ripe and golden-colored), they will make a wine that is richer and more full-bodied. If the grapes are left on the vine until they become over-ripe (gathering more sugar concentration), they could even be made into a sweet dessert wine. The grapes for this lovely dry Riesling were hand-harvested at the end of September, and then whole-bunch pressed (in order to make a cleaner and higher quality juice). The wine was fermented at a low temperature (to preserve the most aromas) in stainless steel tanks. It then aged (in the steel tanks) with its lees (which is the yeast sediment) until bottling. This gives a richer mouthfeel, and a soft toasty, yeasty flavor. This wine is nice with dishes that have citrus-flavors, with fish and seafood, or with Asian dishes.

Pannonhalma is the smallest Hungarian wine region. It has a unique place in Hungarian wine culture and Hungarian history because of the Benedictine Abbey which stands proudly on the top of the region’s tallest hill. About a thousand years ago, when the foundations of Hungary were laid down, the Benedictine monks sensed that something magical was going on here and founded the monastery.

Ever since then they have been focusing on higher education, wine growing, maintaining their renowned arboretum, growing herbs, making medicinal oils, brewing beer, and compiling their world famous library (which you can still visit today). Don’t miss this if you happen to be traveling in the area.

The Benedictines started winemaking here, and then inspired other locals to make wine. For the longest time, the winemaking was dominated by the abbey, and their state-of-the-art winery. These days, smaller, family-run operations have also been popping up in this up-and-coming region. It has been long overdue, and it is great to see that local families are inspired by the terroir and history of this place, and that they are finding their own wine voice.

The region is not much bigger than 600 hectares, and it has a typical continental climate: hot summers, cool springs and falls, and cold winters. The region produces almost exclusively white wine, with a few very good exceptions, such as Pinot Noir, Kékfrankos, and Merlot. This is the time to discover this region’s potential through the locals who are experimenting with what they can achieve here.

The Cseri family’s winery is located in Pannonhalma, a lesser-known, but up-and-coming region in northwestern Hungary. The region is Hungary’s smallest, with less than 1,500 acres of vineyards. It is best known for its Benedictine archabbey, founded in 996. The Medieval building sits atop of a hill, commanding the landscape when you drive into the area. Most people solely associate Pannonhalma wine with the renowned winery located within the abbey. The Cseri family founded its winery in 2012 after Norbert Cseri spent many years as head winemaker at the abbey. They are one of the few families in the region who sell their wine commercially.

The Cseri family produces a variety of wines, but are especially passionate about Rhine Riesling, and they produce a series of six types every year. The entire family is involved with the winery. Eszter (Norbert’s wife) does marketing and sales. Barnabás (their son) just joined him on the winemaking side after working for a few years in the Mosel Valley. Auguszta (their daughter) is studying wine marketing in Wachau, Austria. She helps with running English-language tastings.
