ST. ANDREA Egri Bikavér Superior 'Merengő' 2018


Merengő is the flagship wine of the St Andrea winery, and this award-winning Egri Bikavér Superior is a bold vintage from a selection of their best barrels.

Deep ruby colour. Very attractive, rich nose of blackcurrant, blackberry and forest berries open out to include forest soil and a floral touch. A fantastic, mouth-filing wine with well-integrated tannins and acidity. Long finish with volcanic and chalky minerality.

Food Pairing

The wine's intense character goes very well with meaty dishes like a traditional Hunter's stew. Meanwhile, the fruity palate would pair beautifully with noodles and traditional semi-hard cheese like Baracskai.

Serving temperature: 15-17°C

Expert Opinion

Oz Clarke - Wine Writer - 95 points - Decanter April 2021

This is a tremendous wine: dark, rich, scented – super-ripe, but the fruit flavours are pure and unsullied, and the acidity as crisp as a juicy Cox’s apple. Lush texture, tempered by roasted almond smokiness.
