TÓTH FERENC WINERY – 40 YEARS IN THE EGER WINE REGION
We are a family winery. Thanks to 40 years of persistent work, we now cultivate a wonderful estate of 25 hectares and mature our wines in a unique five-branch cellar tunnel system.
TÓTH FERENC WINERY
40 years ago, Uncle Feri had a dream, a big one or maybe not so big after all: he simply wanted to grow grapes, make delicious wine out of them, and share it with others. Since 2006, the next generation has been building and beautifying the legacy. With the combined efforts of Uncle Feri’s daughter, Kata, and her husband, they continue the winemaking with an innovative mindset while keeping the original goal in mind. They hope that one day, they can hand over the keys to the cellar to another generation.
The Eger wine region is wonderful and diverse, both in terms of its natural features and grape varieties. For four decades now, we have been refining our wines every vintage, but it is still a challenge to find the wines that bring us and the consumers recognition and joy. Our task is to perfect the Egri Bikavér and Egri Csillag, while our individual goal is to introduce the Leányka, Kadarka, and Kékfrankos grape varieties to wine lovers in a worthy manner. Through our flagship wine, Várvédő, we can also show the most beautiful face of our winery and vineyards. Our goal is to continually reinvent ourselves to keep up with the changing world while preserving our wine region’s traditions. Despite our long history, we do not dwell on the past but constantly renew ourselves, so that visitors who taste Tóth Ferenc wines, come to our winery, and return home with a reliable quality wine as well as a new (taste) experience.
Egri Csillag Superior 2022
This wine is a superb reflection of Eger wine region, the cool climate, it reveals beautiful, ripened fruit and the refreshing acidity in a deep, layered wine. Our objective was to create a superior quality elegant white blend with long ageing potential.
Egri Kadarka 2021
The wine starts with elegant colour and aromas in the glass. Ruby red with fresh fruity notes. Gradually, the wine unfolds a nose of crisp cherries and fine plums. On the palate, cedary and slightly smoky flavours do not overpower the fruit aromas but complement them nicely. Medium long finish, defined by pleasant acidity and barely drying tannins.
Egri Kadarka Superior 2018
A wine with ruby colour with pomegranate edges. Versatile aromas. Primarily roasted walnut then raspberry syrup and strawberry jam on the nose. After a bit of patience herbal notes are coming complemented by resin, especially at dry test. Lively playful acids and nicely rounding tannins on the palate with ripe cherry. In the intense fruit aroma the pleasant spices are dominant. Oily viscosity, thick at tasting however texture does not overwrite the variety. A wine with more dimensions and great potential…
Egri Pinot Noir Superior 2020
Light ruby colour. The nose is abundant in fresh black berry fruits – blackcurrant, blackberry – and raspberry. These aromas are nicely complemented with balanced, spicy barrel notes from new oak ageing. The palate features the same fruits. Medium body. Vital wine full of energy and with lovely, long finish.
Tóth Ferenc Egri Kékfrankos Superior 2018
Deep ruby colour with grenadier touch. Starts with toasty notes and spices of the barrel ont he nose continues with fruitcake sprinkeled with cinnamon. After a short time the fragrance of sour cherry, characterise the variety, appears as well. Fine tannins and glycerin – alcohol gives great texture and makes it harmonious however its young acids vibrate in the forefront. Long finish with sour-cherry and blueberry complemented with a hing of anise on the palate.
Várvédő Egri Bikavér Superior 2018
Very deep aromas on the nose dominated by ripe black berry fruit with a hint of subtle oak spice. Thick and complex on the palate complemented by ripe fruit. Great balance. The layered, full body is nicely held by the wine’s acidity and ripe tannins. Extremely long finish.
Deep ruby colour, the slow down flow on the glass forecasts a meaty, thick wine. Luckily not too full bodied just as it can be waited for a wine like this. Very rich and alterable aromas. Fruits, rich spices and barrel notes on the nose. Fresh plum, walnut, marzipan and juniper fragrances follows each other. The intense alcohol gives a liqueur character to the wine. Acids and tannins pleasantly integrates into the structure. Similar taste on the palate as on the nose complemented by powerful dark chocolate. Moreover, spices of the barrel, tobacco and smoky notes at the background. Slight chalky finish coming from the production site. A wine with wide taste spectrum, great potential, a real top wine!
