An elegant yet powerful medium-bodied dry red wine, with a complex aroma of red berries, rosehip and raspberry. The palate is characterised by the same intense fruitiness, accompanied by a gentle warmth from the alcohol and rounded out by a dynamic acidity and tight structure that make this a formidable vintage.
It goes very well with duck dishes like a crispy Peking duck or duck with plum sauce. You can also serve it alongside a traditional Chicken Paprikash or a tangy roasted red cabbage, for a memorable experience.

Delicious with steak or a BBQ, while you can even have it as the main course before a decadent dessert, like these Tokaji style fresh berries.
