A medium-bodied dry red wine from the renowned wine region of Eger. Pale ruby in colour, with a touch of garnet. Intense, attractive nose with clear signs of oak-ageing: frankincense, vanilla and cinnamon spice mix elegantly with plum, rum, and cherry aromas. A burst of fresh sour cherries on the palate, complemented by rich minerality, a mouth-filling texture and good acidity. Soft tannins and warming alcohol. A complex, rich wine with excellent ageing potential.
Food Pairing Recommendation
Goes well with pork dishes such as a tenderloin with shiitake mushrooms, or try it with steak or lamb, and semi-hard cheese including Cheddar and Red Leicester.
Serving temperature: 14-16°C
Winery: Gróf Buttler Winery, Eger - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
The Gróf Buttler Winery was established just over 20 years ago and has two vineyards in the Eger region. One of these is Nagy-Eged Hill, which, thanks to its gritty limestone soil, south-facing slopes, and an elevation of 501 metres above sea level, has its own unique micro-climate, making this a true Grand Cru terroir. The winery’s uncompromising approach is characterised by low vine density and yields, ensuring that when each perfectly ripe and juicy grape is harvested, it faithfully reflects the exceptional terroir. The traditional winemaking process preserves the natural quality of the grapes, with resulting vintages that bring to you the innate beauty of the terroir in each bottle.
