2008 Eszterbauer "Tüke" Szekszárdi Bikavér (Bull's Blood)

SKU #1074245

Made from 26% Kékfrankos, 24% Kadarka, 22% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Pinot Noir & 8% Cabernet Franc. Eszterbauer's "Tüke" Bikavér is a fine example of a modern, well-made 'Bullsblood'. Typical for a Bikavér from Szekszard there is a fair amount of Kekfrankos and Kadarka in the cuvee. Each varital and parcel is vinified separately and then blended just before bottling. Perfumed, spicy and deep, yet easy to drink with only 14% Alcohol this wine pairs well with BBQ meats, burgers, and spaghetti Bolognese. (Eric Story, K&L Hungarian Wine Buyer)

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
