A Tóth Ferenc Wine from Eger, Hungary

Egri Csillag, a white wine from Hungary

Late yesterday afternoon, we enjoyed a white wine from Tóth Ferenc, a winery in the Eger wine region of Hungary. The Egri Csillag 2018 was 13% alchol. The light yellow colored wine offered floral and tropical aroma notes. The taste included peaches, citrus, daisies and honeysuckle. The finish was crisp and the aftertaste had a hint of minerality.

The Egri Csillag 2018 was a blend produced with Hungarian grape varieties and international grapes. The blend included Hárslevel?, Királyleányka, Leányka, Olaszrizling, Ottonel Muskotály and Sauvignon Blanc. Egri Csillag is a white blend of wines, a white wine answer to the regions’ Egri Bikavér (Bull’s Blood), a red blend.

We enjoyed our glass of wine on a small deck while relaxing after working in the gardens with planting flowers as well as attempting to rid ourselves of bamboo encroaching on our vegetable garden and lawn. By the way, does anyone have a fool-proof way of getting rid of bamboo?

As to our visit to Tóth Ferenc Pincészet in Hungary’s Eger wine region, we entered the winery where a small counter is available for purchasing Tóth Ferenc wines and were immediately greeted by the winemaker, György Markovics. After touring the winery and wine cellar, we went to a tasting room where we spoke with György about the wines he produces and also learned his story.
