Reviews and Ratings

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

Appears clear, very pale, lemon green with small tears
light nose with floral and citrus overtones of oranges, roses, lemon grass and white pepper; dry with medium alcohol, mimics the citrus of the nose, with generous but soft sweet orange, lime and grapefruit. This Pinot Blanc offers refreshing acidity and a long finish with sweet limes. Excellent value. Suggested accompaniment to light seafood dishes.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Yet another solid product from this Hungarian producer sold under 9 dollars.
Citrus aromas. Nice and easy in the mouth. I would even say delicate. An excellent wine.
Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Green apple with a wonderful citric fruit dimension. In the mouth, medium body with a yummy acidity and a tasty saline mouthfeel. Excellent for the price
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Its almost translucid appearance could fool you into thinking:ah! it must be a lightweight poolside sip. But put your nose in the glass,and you're suddenly waltzing through a sun dappled orchard,in august.The mouth is fresh,with a sligthly bitter note. Let's have quiche!
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pretty peach and apricot nose
Minerally citrusy palate with loads of refreshing acidity, light in body.

Summer patio session sipper with nothing but fresh air and sunshine.
Cheap and cheerful, just like me!
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas are citrusy, firm peach, pear, and some white flower. Nice fruity and mouthwatering palate with pear, lemon, and some minerailty. A really great value for a Sumer wine, buy this by the case and serve as a house wine at parties.
