Eva's Vineyard Chenin Blanc/Pinot Grigio/Királyleányka 2008

Whenever I need wine for a cooking ingredient, instead of buying the cheapest possible excuse for a wine I can find, I try to find something a little different.  Sill cheap mind you, but something that I may be curious to try but would normally consider a risk.

So today the wine is this Hungarian white from Waitrose.  It's a blend of Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Királyleányka (an indigenous variety).

The wine is a very pale onion skin colour.  It has a pretty thin peachy, tropical fruit flavour, with a strong, lingering tartness.  Not the greatest, but it's made for the low end of the market and it tastes like it.
