ST. ANDREA Egri Bikavér 'Áldás' Half Bottle 2016

Opens with exuberant fruit aromas, with red berries and sweet spices shining through. 2016 was an especially strong vintage, reflected 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.

This half-bottle (0.375l) makes a great gift, perfect as a stocking filler while it fits into hampers too.
