Wine of August: Tóth Ferenc Egri Csillag Classicus 2020
Egri Csillag is the white blend of the wine region, always fresh, charming, never too aromatic, but juicy, good to drink. Tóth Ferenc Winery uses Olaszrizling, Hárslevelű, Királyleányka and Leányka grapes for the blend, all fermented separately in stainless steel tanks.
“Straw colour with golden reflexes. Intense aroma, youthful blossoms, white meat fruits and yellow plum on the nose. Begins with grape flower fragrance of the Királyleányka grape complemented with honey aromas of Hárslevelű and Leányka. More flowers like freesia come from the background. Nice spices on the palate with very long, fine acids. Alcohol nicely harmonises with the structure of the wine promises great potential.” – Adél Bernáth-Ulcz, CsokiLaBor
