Egri Bikaver (Bulls Blood)

Launching the new 2019 vintage of our classic Egri Bikaver (Bulls Blood) from Korona which is surrounded by hot thermal springs and rich minerality. A unique wine, with great historic significance where against all the odds the defenders of Eger (fuelled on wine) won the battle of 1552 against 100,000 Ottoman soldiers, who pronounced the Hungarians must have been drinking Bulls Blood, they were so strong. A blend of 60% kekfrankos, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, this wine has evident minerality, peppery notes and red forest fruits. Really interesting and super versatile for pairing.
