BOLYKI Egri Kékfrankos 2016

This vineyard selection medium-bodied dry red wine is a rich and powerful vintage with plenty of potential.

VESZTERGOMBI "Kétvölgy" Szekszárdi Kékfrankos Selection 2018 

Made with hand-picked berries from the celebrated Kétvölgy vineyard of the warm-climate Szekszárd region, this is a fine example of what the kékfrankos grape variety can offer at its best. Sitting garnet in the glass this wine has layers of depth and complexity. The harmonious combination of purple and dark fruits pair with oak on the nose, followed by smoky spice and rustic earthy flavours. Medium-bodied, though the richness suggests more. Medium tannins and delicate, high acidity complete this wine.

WASSMANN Bio-Dynamic Organic Villányi Kékfrankos 2015

Produced from hand-picked, organically cultivated grapes and with a biodynamic approach to winemaking, this Kékfrankos is an elegant and perfectly balanced vintage, representing a pure and authentic taste of the Villány region.

Deep ruby-purple colour. Smoky, earthy nose with an aroma of cherries and dark berries in the background, and a hint of black pepper. Made in an elegant, cool-climate style, the wine is bone dry and has high acidity, but a soft and velvety mouthfeel. The palate is dominated by sour cherries, mushrooms, and cedarwood. Youthful, fine tannins and smoky, spicy finish with a bite; this bottle will only get better with age. An intriguing, serious wine for deep conversations.

Feel yourself transported a continent away by these delicious Bombay potatoes featuring a Hungarian twist, this aromatic and fragrant dish encapsulates all that is great about fusion cuisine. Using simple ingredients and quick to prepare, it makes a great side for curry dishes but can easily be the main course on its own as well.
