This is the modern renaissance of quality Bull's Blood, or "Bikaver" as it prefers to be known today. The style is a showcase of the finest red wine blends in Eger, built on the backbone of Kekfrankos, which must make up more than 50% of the blend. Böjt's Bikaver is sourced from old vines on his family's estate in Ostoros, 4km from the city of Eger. Ruby red with aromas of vanilla, violets and berries. Layers of mulberries, dark cherries, liquorice and cocoa over soft tannins and well integrated, lightly smoky oak tones.
Pairs beautifully with: Goulash! Also try with pan-fried lamb, game, or mushroom dishes. It loves umami and earthy, rich flavours.
Cheese pairing: Soft cheese like ripe Brie, or hard salty cheese like Pecorino.
