This type of grape was bred in Cserszegtomaj, a village situated next to Lake Balaton by one of the most emblematic figures of the profession, Bakonyi Károly in 1960. The two types used in its interbreeding were Red Traminer and Irsai Olivér. The noble variation called Welschriesling and the nectar grape types are also linked with the name of Bakonyi Károly. The productive capacity of the white Cserszegi Fűszeres is average, its bunches are medium-sized, its berries are small and have thin skin. It is a type of early ripening, has excellent putrefaction-enduring qualities and it remarkably resists congelation. In Hungary, the wine called Cserszegi Fűszeres with its vibrant acids, intensive, flowery and perfume-like bouquet is one of the most popular grape types that shall provide basis for any white wine. Its flavour can be regarded as a real fruit bomb. According to Kozma Pál, who happens to be the creator of Irsai Olivér, ‘with the advent of Cserszegi Fűszeres a brand new world of aromas got into the world of viniculture’. It managed to find its place in the Danube Region as well. It is no mere chance that the National Cserszegi Fűszeres and Irsai Olivér wine and pálinka competitions are organised each year in the town of Soltvadkert.
