Kiralyleanyka is a Hungarian, white grape variety which is also grown in different wine regions around the country. These wine regions include Eger, Sopron and Lake Balaton.

Kiralyleanyka grapes

The name means “maiden” or “princess” just like Feteasca Regala of Romania, which Kiralyleanyka grape variety is also related to.

It is traditionally used to design and produce both varietal and blended dry and off-dry wines, which are remarkable of their fresh acidity.

Kiralyleanyka is a widely planted variety in Hungary covering 2,328 acres which produces high quality and flavorful wines.


Kiralyleanyka is believed to be identical with Feteasca Regala from Romania while others said that it is a natural cross between Kövérszőlő and Leanyka originated from Transilvania.

According to DNA profiling, Feteasca Regala and Kiralyleanyka are two distinct grape varieties and the proposed ancestry was also denied, however, Leanyka is possibly the parent of Kiralyleanyka.

Characteristics of Kiralyleanyka

The berries of Kiralyleanyka are small and grow in tight clusters. The flowers are mid budding and ripening having medium to high yields. Kiralyleanyka is susceptible to diseases like botrytis rot and downy mildew.

Characteristics of Kiralyleanyka Wines

This grape variety is remarkable for its fresh acidity and mostly used for the production of varietal, dry and off-dry wines.

Kiralyleanyka produces wines which are fresh and lightly perfumed, frequently grapey; and were specifically popular for the last ten years as typical summer or party wines.

The notable fresh acidity of this variety contributes being a good blending partner for other softer and lighter varieties.

Food Pairings

Great food pairings are required for high quality and flavorful wines. Kiralyleanyka wines are known for having fresh acidity.

These wines are best to drink with lemon-poached zander fillet, grilled chicken with fresh herb salad as well as chilled green-bean salad with tahini and spring onion.

Drinkers would love and enjoy, when proper food dishes go well with their chosen Kiralyleanyka wine.

Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
