International Wine Challenge 2019 - Silver Medal
A medium-bodied red dry wine from the world-renowned wine region of Eger. Fruity noise with hints of fresh herbs. Dynamic wine, with a rich palate of boisterous red cherries, spices and red berries. It is well balanced with supple tannins, reflecting the characteristics of the terroir, with a long chocolaty finish.
