This full-bodied single-vineyard Bikavér from St Andrea's Hangács plot is a blend of five different red grape varieties. Deep ruby colour and a complex nose of red and black cherries with supporting oak notes of chocolate and coffee. Wonderfully soft and concentrated palate shows a combination of fresh fruit, gentle spice and some toastiness. Ripe tannins, firm acidity. This beautiful wine is perfect to drink now and also has great ageing potential.
An ideal wine for steaks and grills. Try with a rich mushroom dish or a spicy Moroccan stew.
