Cserszegi fűszeres is a white Hungarian grape variety.[1] It is named after its place of origin: Cserszegtomaj near Keszthely. The word fűszeres means "spicy".

The white Cserszegi fűszeres is a hybrid between the Irsai Olivér and Roter Traminer, a member of the Traminer family closely related to Gewürztraminer. It was created in 1960 by Károly Bakonyi at the Pannon University of Agriculture.[1]

The grape variety has a high yield with high sugar content and is less sensitive to cold. Its wines are dry or half dry and have a distinctive aroma, spicy taste with a harmonious acid; this variety is often informally called "spiced wine" in Hungary.

Distribution in Hungary: mainly in the Vineyards of Csongrád, Hajós, Baja, Kunság, Etyek, Buda, and in the Balaton region.

The name is Cserszegi Fűszeries is erroneous (with an extra "i").[1]
