Törley "Gala" Sec

SKU #1078090

In 1882, when József Törley decided to put the knowledge that he had acquired in Reims to use in his own country, the tradition of quality sparkling wine making in Hungary was born. He found an ideal place in Budafok, with similar soil and climate as Champagne. And, just as in the Champagne region, cellars here are carved out of limestone that ensures the steady temperature essential for making good quality sparkling wine. In 1907 the winery celebrated its 25th anniversary. Gála is a charmant method sparkling wine made from an unexpected combination of varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and the Hungarian native grape Királyleányka. Chardonnay and Pinot define the wine while the Riesling and Királyleányka add aroma and acidity. Perfect for all occasions it has the style for dinner but a price for mimosas.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
