“Nagy Somlói Nász 2017
A surprise of the year from Tornai Winery. An extraordinary wine from Somó, a mild, flowery, easy drinking blend of Olaszrizling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer. Intense nose with peach, rose oil, and lavender. A vibrant, young, lively wine, full of fresh fruity aromas and rounded acidity.
It is a blend of native Somló grapes with the popular Sauvignon Blanc. Olaszrizling gives a good acidity, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc gives the spicyness, fruitness, and vibration. Good balance, exciting and popular style at the same time.
“Nasz” is az old word, it means marriage, wedding. The name is referring to a legend about Somlo wines. According to this legend the wines of Somlo were historically ordered for every Habsburg wedding as they increase fertility and the chance of a male heir.
