Kadarka is a native Hungarian red wine grape and some say it is the single grape with the greatest potential for making unique, terroir-driven wines in Hungary. This beautiful Kadarka Superior from Eger is a fine example of how the grape can shine.
Deep ruby colour. Intensely fruity, enticing nose dominated by raspberries and red cherries. Silky smooth palate with ripe tannins, well-integrated alcohol and balanced acidity. Flavours of raspberry leaf and cherries, and a long fruit finish.
Food pairing recommendation: Try with rich pork dishes, such as tenderloin with shiitake mushrooms, or serve with a spicy vegetable stew or semi-hard cheeses including Cheddar and Red Leicester.
Serving temperature: 14-16°C
