Grape variety: 
Olaszrizling
Description: 

From the Badacsony region in Balaton, the 'Friss' - which translates to 'Fresh' - is made from 100% Olaszrizling.

Olaszrizling, also known as Welschriesling, is indigenous to the region. It is also the local grape of choice for Balaton's wine producers.

Bence Laposa is no different, as he has built his reputation on this grape!
His Olaszrizling is pure and clean with a bright yellow tone. Citrus notes dominate. On first sip, there's a hint of pineapple.This, then gives way to a mild spiciness. A complex yet easy drinking wine.

All in all, an excellent introduction to the Laposa style. Good expression of the fruit (notes of, pear, apricot, and almond) and rich in minerality from the terroir (volcanic soil).

Best served at 12-13 degrees as an aperitif, to salads, white meats and fish. But, it may be consumed as a spritzer, as well!
