   The flagship wine of the Vesztergombi winery, this full-bodied red wine cuvée is a classic Bordeaux blend. It is made from fruit which is carefully hand-selected and only in years when its outstanding quality can be guaranteed. You are drawn in by a rich nose of plum and mulberry with hints of liquorice. The palate is charactersied by an intense fruity aroma with jammy undertones, rounded out by a perfectly balanced acidity and a long finish.

Food Pairing Recommendation

   It goes very well with Hungarian dishes including goulash soup, beef stew and lecso, as well as steak, lamb and semi-hard cheese including Cheddar and Red Leicester.

Serving temperature: 14-16°C

Winery: Vesztergombi Winery, Szekszárd

   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. Its first Bikavér (Bull's Blood) was released in 1993, the year when founder Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary. Today, with three generations working together in the business, the winery continues to produce outstanding red wines that authentically reflect the unique terroir of the Szekszárd region.
