Winery Patricius

Varietal: Muscat

Muscat grapes are widely understood to be one of the oldest grape varietals in the world, with many experts claiming that a surprising amount of grape varietals used in the production of fines wines are in fact descendants of this original species. They are characterized by their high juice content, and the fact that they almost always hold a powerful and pleasant floral aroma, alongside bright, fresh and tart fruity flavors with have plenty of space for the expression of terroir. Muscat varietal grapes are renowned for being highly versatile, and are regularly used for the production of a vast range of wines – still dry white wines, elegant sparkling wines, sweet dessert wines and aromatic fortified wines are all often made from this special and unique grape.

Country: Hungary

Hungary was once considered one of the world's leading wine countries, with their distinctive and flavorful wines being the favorites of Europe's royal families until the early 20th century and the fall of the dual monarchy of Austria-Hungary. The Soviet Union all but obliterated Hungary's wine traditions, replacing their unique produce with the sweet and characterless red wines the country is still often associated with, yet thankfully, the past twenty five years has seen an impressive return to form. All over the historic Tokaj region, craftsmen and master vintners are using the grape varietals which thrive on the hillsides in the hot summers and long autumns to once again produce the amazingly flavored Tokaji wines – a wine made by allowing the grapes to wither on the vine, thus concentrating the sugars and producing remarkable flavors and aromas of marzipan, dried fruits, pear and candied peel.
