Egri Bikavér 'Bull's Blood' Selection


Bikavér, or Bull's Blood, is a legendary Hungarian red wine. Experience the best of the volcanic Eger terroir with three special award-winning vintages.

Bikavér, also known as 'Bull's Blood', is a classic Hungarian red cuvée. It can only be made by following strict guidelines, yet this traditional terroir wine serves as winemakers' ruby red signature, living up to its legendary name. At least three local grape varieties are combined into a perfectly harmonious blend, creating a rich and fruity masterpiece with a tantalisingly complex mineral structure that only the best Bull's Blood can provide.

BUKOLYI Organic Egri Bikavér 'Bull's Blood' 2020

Combining hand-picked grapes from three traditional varieties, this is the only organic Egri Bikavér produced in the region and it certainly packs a punch.

The wine shows off an attractive inky purple and red hue; pouring medium to medium-full. It's clear that there is depth and complexity here, as a seductive array of flavours are jumping out from the glass. Oak and bramble, alongside red and blue fruits, are complemented by rustic aromas of forest floor and chocolate. A tantalising acidity and medium tannins give the wine its balance. Hints of flint, smoke and paprika can be found on the finish.

ST. ANDREA Egri Bikavér Superior “Bull” 2021

A superior quality Bull's Blood from Eger, this award-winning red wine is everything a great Bikavér should be.

Deep and complex nose with aromas of red cherry, red berries and a hint of liquorice root. Savoury style with notes of ripe bramble and leafy black fruits complemented by oak, chocolate and sweet smoked spice. Its medium body and elegant minerality are characteristic of the volcanic, cool-climate Eger terroir. Soft, ripe tannins and fine acidity set this wine up perfectly for food pairing and ageing if you can wait.
