From the winemaker: “The climate of this wine region is rather cool, and it is duly represented in the wines’ character, namely in their exciting acidity, rich aromas, not overpoweringly present tannins and their elegance. None of these would be realized if Eger did not have a soil so fundamentally rich in character. It is complex and varied. Here the lower layer rhyolite tuff of volcanic origin dominates, and is covered by hard, deep brown soil rich in clay. Moreover, composition of the soil in the slopes and vineyards is breathtakingly colourful and unique, where lime, slate, zeolite, marl and sandstone, or a combination of these can be found, giving the wine a strong character. The climatic condition of the Eger wine region is mainly affected by its proximity of the Bükk Mountains. All in all, we can say that Eger wines contain an exciting amount of acidity and long-lingering pleasant flavour.”
