ST. ANDREA Egri Bikavér Superior 'Merengő' 2017

The flagship wine of the St Andrea winery, made from a selection of the best barrels.

Deep ruby colour. Very attractive, rich nose reflecting a lot of maturity. Blackcurrant, blackberry and forest berries on the nose complemented by forest soil and a touch of florality. A fantastic, mouth-filing wine with well-integrated tannins and acidity. Long finish with volcanic and chalky minerality.

Food Pairing

An ideal wine for steaks and grills. Try with a rich mushroom dish, goulash soup, beef stew or lecso

Serving temperature: 15-17°C

Goulash Soup

Goulash (Gulyas) is the most famous Hungarian dish in the world and one of the country's national dishes. This is a very traditional beef goulash recipe made with simple ingredients like meat, peppers and root vegetables elevated to perfection by the use of Hungary’s most famous spice: paprika.

Lecso - Mixed Pepper Stew

Lecso is an ancient dish originally from Serbia, and a great summer meal when all the ingredients are in season and you want to eat something a little lighter. Lecso is very versatile, it can be a great vegetarian dish while adding sliced Hungarian sausages (kolbasz) would make this a one pot main course. You can also serve it as a side dish to roast meats, especially pork, while any left-overs can be had for breakfast by adding a couple of eggs to the prepared Lecso.
