Deep Dive Into a Superb Hungarian Sauvignon Blanc
Haraszthy Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is every year among the best Sauv Blancs of Hungary – as we reported several times.

Cool climate Etyek wine region is ideal for the grape variety, and 2020 vintage has proved its potential again: it received gold medal at the latest edition of VinAgora international wine competition.
 

“A fresh and zippy New World style Sauvignon Blanc. Very intense scent of tropical fruits dominated by passion fruit. On the palate the set of fruits expand with ripe peach and some light vegetal hints. A long and luxurious aftertaste brings fruit flavours to the fore. The characteristic acidity of the Etyek wine region fits nicely to the New World style of this wine.”


Try the chef’s recommendation in reality
 

The chef’s suggestion for the wine: “Recommended for rucola based salads, seafood. Also goes well with roasted chicken breast seasoned with green spices.“
 

Does it work or not? Try it yourself at Matador steak house, the in-site restaurant of Haraszthy Vineyard. The terrace by the swiming pool and the covered part of the eatery offers great stay in any weather.

The chefs, André Bicalho and Diego Omar Bautista created a superb summer menu with light dishes like the mouth-watering plate below.

    With 30 plus wine cellars, Etyek, part of the Etyek-Buda wine region, has much more going for it than just being close to the Hungarian capital, as the members of the Etyek 360 association showed at a recent tasting in Budapest; quite likely to be my last tasting for a while, reports Robert Smyth.
