ST. ANDREA Egri Csillag Grand Superior 'Boldogságos' 2020
Meet the Winemaker
Egri Csillag is an aromatic, rich and vibrant new white wine blend crafted from indigenous Hungarian grape varieties. This Grand Superior from the award-winning St Andrea Winery of Eger is one of its finest examples.
Opulent nose with elegant notes of pear, peach and gooseberry complemented by white floral aromas 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. This is a sophisticated and velvety wine with a complex and refined structure.
Beyond the obvious choices of fish and seafood, try pairing it with spicy Asian dishes or rich, creamy vegetable casseroles. Washed-rind cheese such as Epoisses and Limburger will also be a great match.
