Opens with exuberant fruit aromas, with red berries and sweet spices shining through. 2016 was an especially strong vintage, reflecting in this ripe and powerful Bull's Blood. A fruity palate is balanced by the minerality of the volcanic soil and the fine acids of the cool climate Eger region.

An ideal wine for steaks and grills. Try with a rich mushroom dish or a spicy Moroccan stew.
