Egri Bikavér 2016

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 which 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 richness of aromas and perfect harmony is provided by merlot flavoured with vanilla and cabernet franc with its violet character.    This wine becomes fairy with its playful acids, good tannins and the notes of fine barrel aging.  Spicy and fruity at once. Vibrant, however easy to understand. A complex, medium – bodied, harmonious wine.
