Reviews and Ratings

Alice Kubicek rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Very pale lemon green and bright in clarity with small tears. Clean with light intensity of melons and minerality. Roses and light white pepper spice predominate the aroma with some grassiness . Pronounced lemons and limes in the mouth, with an impression of an juicy medium+ acidity, low alcohol, medium minus body and long soft finish of melons. Excellent value for the price. Could be paired with light cream sauces.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Dunavar seems to be a master at making super affordable light and delicious wine. The Muscat is a little gift to the nose and the palate. I mean, why drink orange juice when for 4 dollar more you can have that.... Just kidding.
White flowers and pineapple aromas. Nice and easy mouth with acidity and fruit with some lenght. A steal at that price.
Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lots of white fruit with nervy spice and beautiful floral notes. In the mouth, medium body with a nice mineral and floral expression. Tonic finale
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful floral rose petal and ripe tropical fruit on the nose, showing guava and pineapple. Luscious rich palate of tropical fruit and rose, long floral finish.
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very pale yellow, and aromatic. Floral notes, pineapple and lemon on the nose. Medium acidity, pleasant lemon and pineapple flavours. A real bargain priced wine from Hungary that is sure to please for less than $9 a bottle.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A typical nose of muscat,quite endearing. It starts with a bold fruity and spicy palate,but it mellows quickly,making it a fun candidate as a little cheese plate companion. Fruity but not sweet.Nice delicate herbal undertones.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Oct 5, 2014: Pale silver/gold, spicy nose with peach, pear, ginger, nutmeg, spun sugar, and floral notes. Dry, with citrus, pear and spice on the palate and mouthwatering acidity. Light bodied and refreshing with just a faint prickle of CO2 on the tongue. An excellent value patio sipper or with pan fried pickerel in a tarragon cream sauce. 87-88
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Very Clear yellow color almost uncolored!

A powerful nose of litchi, white flower, peach and spice.

The palate is thin and short.

Take it by itself or with a lobster cocktail!

Serve it at 8-10 degrees.

Ready to drink!
Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:

A very nice bouquet of tropical fruit, lychee, melon, honey, pink grapefruit aromas.

Flavours of grapefruit, lemon green apple and honey. Crisp and refreshing with a touch of bubbles on the mouthfeel.
