Super 12 white and red wines

 

The best Hungarian wines according to wine writers

The Circle of Hungarian Wine Writers was founded in 2016, and it has 26 members. Apart from working on making wine media a better phenomenon, the Circle organizes an annual wine competition. The first contest was held in 2016, results can be found here. In the first part of the procedure the members nominated their most memorable wines tasted in 2017. The resulting list was rather elongated, thus members had to vote for wines (they could not vote for their own nominees). At the end of the voting period the list of the 12 outstanding white and 12 red red wines took shape – the so called Super 12 were selected.
