VESZTERGOMBI Szekszárdi Bikavér 'Bull's Blood' 2016

An elegant Bikavér from Szekszárd, this is a silky smooth, medium-bodied dry red wine. Plum, dark berry and dark chocolate on the palate, complemented by fine oak notes from two years of oak barrel ageing. Kékfrankos gives the wine its body, Cabernet Sauvignon adds spiciness and depth, Merlot gives it a gentle character, while Kadarka provides its soul - lots of soul! This beautifully balanced wine touches the heart.

Vesztergombi Winery, Szekszárd - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The Vesztergombi family looks back on a centuries-old tradition of winemaking in the region around Szekszárd in southern Hungary, where the River Danube meanders between rolling hills and fertile valleys. This scenic setting provides the perfect conditions for growing red grapes with character. The Vesztergombi winery was re-established in 1991, resurrecting the long-held family tradition, and founder Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary in 1993. Today, with three generations working together, the winery continues to produce award-winning red wines that authentically reflect the unique terroir of the Szekszárd region.
