Irsai Oliver

Irsai Oliver
Irsai Olivér is a relatively young and early ripening light-skinned white wine grape variety native to Hungary famous for its light fresh wines with pungent aromas, reminiscent of some muscat notes, but with more spicy and occasionally vegetal flavours. The grape variety is a crossing between the Pozsonyi and the Csaba Gyöngye in the town of Kecskemét in 1930, probably by the researcher named Irsai Olivér. It is usually used for the production of uncomplicated table wines for every day and also blended with other white grape varieties. Most of the plantings in Hungary are in the Sopron wine region and outside the country in Slovakia, Slovenia and Austria.
