Várvédő 2013

6000 Ft

Deep ruby colour. Excitingly spicy, fruity bouquet. Full bodied, creamy, tasty. A velvety wine with great balance and rich taste.

The flagship wine of the winery. We produce this blended wine only in our best years. The name “Várvédő” (meaning: defender of the fortress) reminds us of the heroes of the Eger Fortress, who defended the Fortress against the Turkish Army and as a result, had stopped them for 40 years from entering further in Europe. Ferenc Tóth produced this wine at the first time for the 450th anniversary of the defence of the Eger Fortress.
