Bolyki Es Bolyki Egri Bikaver Superior 2015
Bolyki Es Bolyki Egri Bikaver Superior has an attractive deep ruby colour and spicy nose. The bouquet opens with blackberry and blueberry fruit before expanding into chocolate and pepper notes. Rich and chewy medium-bodied palate with a tight tannic structure and lively acidity. Dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours dominate the palate, with layers of vanilla, leather and a long mineral finish.
Blend of Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch), Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Zweigelt, Blauburger and Portugieser. The fruit comes from Bolyki's vineyards in Eger, Hungary. The vineyards have brown forest soils and experience a cool climate.
Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Ages for 18 months in 500L oak barrels. No filtering before bottling.
