Notes & Pairings

Rezeda is the Hungarian word for the perfumed Mignonette flower that grows all over the Káli Basin alongside the famous lavender of the area. Romans used it as a sedative to treat injury, the Greeks considered it ambrosial, and Gyula considers it one of the best things to find in Olaszrizling. Not surprisingly, this is the most floral wine of the estate. The grapes also come from four sites defined by basalt and the resulting saltiness on the palate is the perfect foil to balance said aromatics. For those looking for something aromatic, weighty without new oak, and brimming with volcanic acidity, please give this wine some consideration.
