A medium-bodied dry red wine from the world-renowned wine region of Eger. Bright ruby red in colour, with tantalising aromas of plum, rum cherry and the exotic spices of oriental bazaars. On the palate it has a rich minerality with well-rounded acids and pampering tannins. It is a complex wine with excellent ageing potential.
Food Pairing Recommendation
It goes very well with pork dishes like a tenderloin with shiitake mushrooms, or try it with steak, lamb and semi-hard cheese including Cheddar and Red Leicester.
Serving temperature: 14-16°C
