Ben says

★ Good Wine As you’d expect from a wine that’s made of one third Cserszegi Fűszeres – Hungary’s Muscat-like white variety – this is immediately floral and juicy, but paired back by the grapefruit zing and fullness of the Zenit grape. It’s rounded and easy to like but with a mineral backbone that gives good length and freshness.
