    Etyek Hungarian Wine

    Etyek Hungary wineEtyek to the west of Budapest is the closest wine area to the capital. Those who like their wine harsh will certainly find it here. Chardonnays here are greener than anywhere else and rarely convincing. Some wines even smell strongly of sulphur but these are best ignored for these Hungarian wines.

    The Sauvignon Blancs of Etyek Vinum and Hungarovin (Gyôrgy Villa Selection) are much better. The best Etyek Hungarian wines are perhaps the less commercial ones such as Etyeki Kirâlyléanyka of Etyekvinum and Olaszrizling Gyôrgy Villa of Hungarovin. Drinking temperature for this Hungarian wine is 8-12°C (46.4-53.6°F).
