Heumann Lagona 2015, Hungary
Grown in the warmth of the Villany region this soft red wine leads with aromas of red berries and vanilla. On the palate are red plums, meaty leather, raspberries and cocoa along a velvet-smooth tannin. The 15 year old vines lend concentration to the fruit, while 22 months' maturation in Hungarian barriques gives the wine an elegant structure and a long finish. Drink now or mature for up to another six years.
Pairs beautifully with: Sirloin steak, beef straganoff, a posh cheeseburger with blue cheese and steak chunk, roast duck or grilled mushrooms and garlic.
Cheese pairing: Cheshire, Red Leicester (especially Red Storm wax hard cheese), mature Cheddar or Parmesan.
