Question: Visited Hungary this summer and was drinking a light white wine called Badacsony. Would appreciate your thoughts on it.

Answer: Not much information given to go on. However Badacsony is a wine growing region near Lake Balaton in Hungary. There are quite a few different grape varieties grown there including almond softer focused Rizling (Riesling), open Muscat Ottonel, the unique spicy aromatic Keknyelu, and my favourite one Szurkebarat (Pinot Gris). Interesting to compare their easy rounder style pinot gris with other examples of this popular grape from around the world.
