About Hungarian Wines
It helps that it produces one of the world's most highly prized dessert wines,Tokaji, which has undergone something of a revival in the UK over the last decade. At least that keeps its profile relatively high. As well as some decent red, Hungary does produce some pretty good dry whites, mainly from the local variety, Furmint. These tend to be dry and aromatic in style, along the lines of Gewürztraminer and Riesling.
Major white grape varieties: Chardonnay, Furmint, Harslevelii, Leanyka, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling,Gewürztraminer. Major red grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Kadarka.
Key areas to watch: Lake Balaton, Szekszard, Villany Siklos, Eger.Tokaj.
