Grape Varieties - Cserszegi Fuszeres

Cserszegi Fuszeres

This cultivar was created in the early 1960s from a crossing of Irsai Oliver and Savagnin Rose. It was created in the Pannon University of Agriculture in Hungary and has remained within that country's borders despite its evident qualities. Must be something to do with that mouthful of a name. It was first commercialised in the early 1980s.

Fuszeres is Hungarian for "spicy". The Cserszegi bit comes from the name of a village. 

Odd one this, but apparently bunches of Cserszegi Fuszeres often contain reddish, as well as green, berries.
