Ruby coloured red wine specialty from the warm climate Szekszárd region of Hungary, made from hand-picked berries of the indigenous Kadarka grape. Light and crisp, with a lively and vibrant red fruit flavour, as cherry, raspberry and strawberry initially jump from the glass, rounded out by spicy notes characteristic of Kadarka. There is a stemmy earthiness to the wine, with a fine acidity.

Szent Gaál Winery, Szekszárd - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
Centered around a baroque-style chateau, the Szent Gaál winery encompasses 23 hectares of prime vineyards across three parcels, each with its own unique character. Traditional red grape varieties are cultivated in areas most suited to their temperament, benefiting from the variety of soil types and subtle differences in micro-climate present throughout the Szekszárd wine region. Under the careful supervision of female winemaker Ilona Posevitz, the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified using traditional methods, creating approachable wines which bring the warmth and kindness of the region and its people to your table.
Chicken Paprikash, called Paprikás Csirke in Hungarian, is a popular weekend staple and a classic of the Hungarian culinary arts. As suggested by its name, smoky and aromatic paprika is at the heart of the dish, which combines simple ingredients into comfort food paradise.
Healthy and hearty at the same time, this is a real gourmet treat. The salmon is perfectly complemented by the earthy, wooden aroma of forest mushrooms and the intense flavour of the venison charcuterie, while the crisp-tender asparagus gives your palate a refreshing green relief.
