Smoky & Peppery

Robert, whose family is originally from Hungary, was born in Canada and grew up on a farm. After some years working as an architect, he found his passion in winemaking, and relocated to his grandparent's country to start a winery. Sourced from old (up to 40 years) and young vines and harvested on two dates to retain the acidity and ripeness.

This Olasrizling is complex, with lovely aromas of white flesh peach with hints of white pepper and some smoky tones. Rich on the palate with nice minerality and vibrant acidity.Sip it as an aperitif or pair it with some rantott hús, aka Wiener Schnitzel (that's basically fried chicken!), smoked fish or some cheese.

About the Winery

Gilvesy Pincészet

Hungarian expat Róbert Gilvesy moved back to his homeland from Canada, and began building the Gilvesy winemaking empire on the former Esterházy estate on Szent György Hill. Thanks to years of hard work, the Hegymagas-based facility now includes a modern building complex and about 13 hectares of vineyards, in addition to being the home of the family. The area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes, where indigenous and international varieties grow organically.

Robert’s absolute admiration for nature and the terroir translates into an immense respect for the environment. By farming using organic practices, the soils and the vines stay healthy. In the winery, by letting nature take its course without controlling the processes, and using local resources, such as Hungarian oak barrels, Gilvesy promotes and protects the Balaton region.
