Marcell Bukolyi produces the only organic Egri Bikavér made from hand-picked grapes, and this complex award-winning Bull's Blood 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 plenty of depth 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.
This wine will beautifully cut through any rich ragù, like a traditional Hunter's stew. Its fine acidity and oak ageing will marry with anything fresh from the BBQ. Though, the traditional goulash will always reign supreme.
Serving temperature: 16°C

A dark ruby wine with generous notes of spiced plum, blackcurrant jam and a hint of balsamic complexity. On the palate, juicy, ripe raspberry fruit and supple tannins - a modern, fruit-focused Bikavér from the only certified producer in the region.
