Egri Bikavér 2015

2500 Ft

Under the brand name Egri Bikavér only dry red wine with geographical protected origin can be put on market. Bikavér is the world-famous wine of the region and is a blend of different red base wines. Base wines have to be aged separately in barrels for minimum six months then further six months in bottle.
Following the tradition of the region, the backbone of our Bikavér wine is given by the spicy Kékfrankos with its determined acids. The rich aromas and perfect harmony is provided by fruity Kadarka, the Merlot gives it a vanilla taste and Cabernet Franc a violet character. This wine comes with its playful acids, good tannins and the traits of fine barrel aging. Spicy and fruity at once. Vibrant, but at the same time light as well. A complex, full-bodied, harmonious wine with great potential.
