Szürkebarát Wine

Szürkebarát

 

Szürkebarát means "grey monk" and it is simply the name of the Pinot gris (AKA Pino grigio in Italian which is a popular American misnomer) grape in Hungarian. However, do not assume that simply because this grape is of French origin, that this is a French wine when grown in Hungary.

Cistercian monks in Hungary fist planted this varietyl on the slopes of Badacsony bordering Lake Balaton in 1375, and to this day near the shores of Lake Balaton this wine has been a constant and reilable producer ever since.

Szürkebarát wines of Hugary are quite different from their French bothers. Properly processed they can be more complex, and more fruity with mellon and tropic fruit aromas and flavors dominating when a proper winery in the region knows how to correctly process this fruit.
