Thummerer Bikavér (Bulls Blood) Superior 2016 (Eger)
Superior dry red wine with a Protected Designation of Origin.
2012 has been a famously excellent vintage in Hungary, especially for the red wines. Hot summer, long sunshine-filled fall, sufficient precipitation, ideal circumstances.
Only the most outstanding vintages produce Superior, which is the top category of the Bikavér (Bulls Blood). It contains varieties from both the Carpathian-basin and worldwide known varieties in equal balance. 18-month wooden barrel ageing was followed by long ageing in the bottles.
Alcohol content: 14,5%, acid content: 5,8 g/l.
Recommendation: It accompanies beef and wild games the best. For example, we suggest a pairing with grilled steak with potato strudel. It is best consumed at 16-18°C.
