Cserszegi Fűszeres

The white grape variety (also Cserszegi Fűszeries) is a new variety between Irsai Olivér x Roter Traminer (Gewürztraminer). The name means "spicy from Cserszeg" (wine-growing community at Lake Balaton). The cross was made in 1960 in Hungary by the breeder Karoly Bakonyi. Plant variety protection was granted in 1982. The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Kosmopolita and Nektar (1). The medium-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and botrytis and produces fragrant, finely acidic white wines with a discreet muscat tone. It is mainly cultivated in the Hajós-Baja and Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja wine-growing regions. In 2016, it occupied a total of 4,299 hectares of vineyards in Hungary (Kym Anderson statistics). This puts it in 128th place in the global grape variety ranking (Kym Anderson).
