BUKOLYI Organic Egri Bikavér 'Bull's Blood' 2020

£16.50

Marcell Bukolyi produces the only organic Egri Bikavér made from hand-picked grapes, and this complex award-winning Bull's Blood indeed 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 jump out from the glass. Oak and bramble, alongside red and blue fruits, are complemented by rustic aromas of forest floor and chocolate. Tantalising acidity and medium tannins give the wine its balance. Hints of flint, smoke and paprika can be found on the finish.


Food Pairing

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


Expert Opinion

Caroline Gilby - Master of Wine - 89 points - Decanter November 2021

Bukolyi Winery, Eger - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The Bukolyi family winery was established 15 years ago by husband-and-wife pair Marcell and Lilla. They cultivate traditional varieties over 14-hectares, located on the southern slopes of the Grand Cru Nagy-Eged hill, on the only 100% organic vineyard of the Eger wine region. The family oversee the grapes’ entire journey from vine to bottle, including hand-harvesting of healthy and ripe berries, as well as gentle vinification using minimal intervention. A small, family-sized cellar serves as the focal point of the vineyards, where they make the unique chalky and volcanic terroir come alive in every drop.
