Gal Tibor Egri Csillag
Egri Csillag (“The Star of Eger”) is a traditional white field blend that must be comprised of at least three grapes, with at least 50% of the wine from native grape varietals. It memorializes the ancient merchants who used the glittering lights of watchmen's huts to guide their way. The old saying goes, “If you travel to Eger, just follow the glittering stars.” Organically grown grapes were hand harvested, lightly crushed, then cold fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel. This compelling white is simultaneously exotic yet accessible. Generous aromas of white flowers, stone fruit, and tropical fruit lead into a medium-weight palate with crisp acidity. More ripe peach, fresh apricot, guava, and kiwi get a splash of zesty citrus and a hint of lemongrass before finishing with a round texture and delicate minerality. Organically grown.
