Tasting Notes

Very pretty aromas of stone fruit, spearmint, and white flowers.  The palate is medium weight, refreshing, and clean, offering notes of rosewater, white peach, yellow plum and a touch of salinity.

WINE INFORMATION

One of Hungary’s smaller wine regions, Pannonhalma is located between Budapest and Vienna. It shares a similar topography with the upper Loire Valley, Alsace, and Burgundy. The region’s winemaking history dates back more than 1,000 years ago when the Benedictine monks founded a monastery in the Pannonhalma. Following the end of WWII, there was a brief hiatus in winemaking and viticulture while the Communist state reigned over the region. All of the vineyards that had been confiscated during this time were bought back by the abbey in 2000 and winemaking resumed. Several vines were replanted in the years that followed, resulting in a total of 52 hectares under vine, including: Rhine Riesling, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Welshriesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.

Winemaker, Tibor Gál helped modernize the cellar and allow for gravity-flow techniques to be used. The estate’s vineyards are farmed sustainably, and all harvesting is completed by hand. Vines for this white blend were planted between 2001-­2007 on loess, white clay, and brown forest soil with clay.
