    Description

    "This exclusive selection of three bikavér from three award-winner wineries and two wine regions showcases the many faces of this quintessential Hungarian wine.

    Bikavér or Bull's Blood in English, is a famous Hungarian red wine cuvée exclusive to the Eger and Szekszárd regions. It can only be made by adhering to strict guidelines, yet this traditional terroir wine serves as the ruby red signature of each winemaker, living up to its legendary name. At least three local grape varieties are combined into a perfectly harmonious blend, creating a rich and fruity masterpiece with a tantalisingly complex mineral structure that only the best Bull's Blood can provide.

    A silky smooth, medium-bodied dry red wine. Kékfrankos gives the wine its body, Cabernet Sauvignon adds spiciness and depth, Merlot gives it a gentle character while Kadarka provides its soul. Plum, dark berry and dark chocolate on the palate, complemented by fine oak notes from the two years of oak barrel ageing.

    GÁL TIBOR Titi Egri Bikavér Superior 'Bull's Blood' 2017
