Region: Balaton - Badacsony
An exciting true terroir wine: Keknyelu is a rare grape variety from almost exclusively the northern shores of Lake Balaton, a specialty from Badacsony. Its floral bouquet becomes reminiscent of yellow fruits upon aging. At the age of 2 or 3, Keknyelu turns into a rounder, more serious wine.
Those who are already familiar with the variety won’t be disappointed, but also highly recommended to those who are a bit more experimenting and want to taste some unusual volcanic wines from this region.
