ST. ANDREA Egri Bikavér Grand Superior 'Nagy-Eged Cru' 2017


The first single-vineyard Bikavér from the grand cru terroir of Nagy-Eged Hill, Decanter selected this special vintage as one of the world's TOP 50 wines.

A rich nose is followed by a vibrant cavalcade of fruit on the palate, as a core of dark fruit, including sour cherry and blackcurrant, is complemented by tertiary aromas of tobacco, dark chocolate and vanilla. Complex and refined with endless layers and depth, the sip culminates in a long mineral finish.

Food Pairing

A mouth-filling red, it makes the perfect pairing for steaks and grills. Alternatively, try it with a rich mushroom dish, goulash soup, beef stew or lecso. Serve it with soft cheese for a moment of gastronomic bliss.

Serving temperature: 15-17°C
