This Egri Csillag is a refreshing and joyful blend from the Bolyki Winery, and it is the white wine equivalent of the famed Egri Bull's Blood. A highly-drinkable choice perfect for long summer evenings, it is made by combining native Hungarian varieties with Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.
The enticingly floral aroma is rounded out by citrus notes, followed by a crisp palate of white fruits and peach, ending in a chalky, mineral finish.
Beyond the obvious fish and seafood choices, you may want to pair this wine withspicy Asian dishesor rich, creamy vegetable casseroles. Washed-rind cheese such as Appenzeller, Epoisses and Limburger will also be a great match.
