Goes great with: Grilled or baked salmon/tuna, grilled or roast chicken and turkey, creamy/buttery sauces, barbecues, pasta dishes like carbonara, seafood in creamy white wine sauce.
Winemaker: Csaba Vesztergombi
Variety/Blend: Kekfrankos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Kadarka
A blend of Kekfrankos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Kadarka grapes which harmonise beautifully to produce this silky, spicy Bikaver from the Vesztergombi winery. Plum, dark berry and dark chocolate on the palate complimented with fine oak notes as a result of two years of barrel ageing. An enjoyable ripe red wine.

Winemaker: Tibor Gal
Variety/Blend: Kekfrankos, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kadarka and Pinot Noir
An excellent blend of Kekfrankos, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kadarka and Pinot Noir. Hand harvested grapes that went through 20-30 days cold-soak maceration and 24 months small barrel maturation, followed by a further six months of bottle ageing. This careful handling produced a lively wine with very complex aromas of red fruits and oriental spices. Fiery, well structured wine, with soft tannins. Beautiful harmony.
Goes great with red meat in rich sauce, such as beef bourguignon, roast red meat or game, chicken with garlic, substantial "meaty" fish like salmon or tuna.
