£16.95

Medium-bodied dry red wine with a refined texture, balanced acidity and soft, pampering tannins. Sparkling bright ruby colour. On the nose delicate floral aromas of lilac and carnations combine with notes of ripe forest fruit. A mouth-watering, rich palate of marzipan, fragrant cloves, and sweet dark cherries. Long finish with lingering eucalyptus and mineral notes. A lyrical, feminine wine that is showing beautifully now and will only improve with time.


Food Pairing

The Kékfrankos grape produces wines that are naturally high in acidity, which makes this bottle the perfect accompaniment to heavy, hearty dishes: steak, sausages and BBQ meats. It also cuts beautifully through spicy dishes, making it the ideal pairing for hot Asian curries, for instance a vindaloo, or even Sichuan chicken. For vegetable lovers, we recommend trying it with an aubergine moussaka.

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. 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.
