Szekszárd Bikavér, Szeleshát 2017

Red Wine from Hungary
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Szekszárd Bikavér (aka Bull's Bood) is lighter in colour and more aromatic than its Eger counterpart, and this is a wonderful example from a talented young female winemaker. A blend of kékfrankos, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and kadarka this has savoury spice notes on the nose with hints of rose petal, dried cranberries and strawberries on the palate with light tannins and refreshing acidity.

Mid garnet. Complex aroma that is a mix of fruit and mature flavours with plenty of fruit sweetness and lots of layers for the price. Marked acidity. Decent all-rounder (unless you want nothing but primary fruit) with the structure for food. 15.5/20
