Food Pairing

Beyond the obvious choices of fish and seafood, you may want to try pairing this wine with spicy Asian dishes or rich, creamy vegetable casseroles. Washed-rind cheese such as Appenzeller, Epoisses and Linburger will also be a great match.

Description

Description

Aromatic, rich and vivacious new blend crafted from indigenous Hungarian grape varieties. Opulent nose with distinct notes of pear, peach and gooseberry complemented by white floral aromas, vanilla and a hint of green herbs. Oak-fermentation and lees-ageing contribute buttery, toasty flavours. The characteristics of the terroir are echoed in notes of ripe fruits and vanilla on the palate, with an intense mineral finish. A complex and balanced structure, this is a sophisticated and velvety wine.

Egri Csillag is a recent innovation from the Eger wine region in northern Hungary. The first samples were made in 2010, in an attempt to present the market with a white sister wine to the famed red blend, Egri Bikavér (Bull’s Blood). Blended from an array of indigenous and international grape varieties, Egri Csillag gives winemakers a free hand to create their own idea of a youthful, refreshing and easy-drinking white.
