One of the best wines from Hungary I have tasted.  Köves is the name of the vineyard.  Egri Csillag means star of Eger which comes from a legend about the lights coming from the Watchman's Huts protecting Hungary from the Turks in the 17th century.  This region has long been known for its reds known as Bulls Blood but apparently a few hundred years ago, the whites were more prominent.  It is an organic blend of 60% Hárslevelű, and 40% Furmint.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is complex and perfumed.  Spicy with wintergreen, alfalfa and gun powder.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, kafir lime with a bit of herbals notes.  Light tannins.  Good acidity.  Persistent finish.  This drinks well on its own and would work well with food.  It would work well with Chicken Paprikash. Drink over the next three to five years.
