BOLYKI Egri Kékfrankos 2016

Kékfrankos is one of Hungary's principal red grape varieties, and this award-winning vineyard selection is a dynamic powerhouse of a wine. 

Deep ruby colour and spicy nose with some floral hints. Savoury palate with searing acidity and a tight tannic structure. Red and black fruits on the palate, especially blackcurrant, accompanied by fragrant, floral notes of violets and lavender. A rich and powerful vintage with plenty of ageing potential.


Food Pairing

Typically for a Kékfrankos, this wine has plenty of acidity, which makes it the perfect accompaniment to heavy, hearty dishes. Serve with steaks, sausages and BBQ meats. It also cuts beautifully through spicy dishes, making it the ideal pairing for hot Asian curries like a vindaloo, or even Sichuan chicken. For vegetable lovers, we recommend trying it with a rich aubergine stew
