    Tasting Notes

    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.

    Food Pairing Recommendation

    It goes very well with Hungarian dishes including goulash soup, beef stew and lecso, as well as steak, lamb and semi-hard cheese including Cheddar and Red Leicester.

    Serving temperature: 14-16°C
