Vesztergombi Szt Laszlo Szekszardi Bikaver 2017

Vesztergombi Szt Laszlo Szekszardi Bikaver smells of dried fruit, cloves and coffee. Every sip is harmonious on the palate with its tight acidity, prune flavours and woody notes. Closes in a nice long finish.

Fun Fact: Named after Saint László the patron saint of Szekszárd. The Knight King is also called God's athlete because of his outstanding physical attributes. He is remembered as a moral, strict but fair ruler both on the battlefield and in politics.

Blend of Kékfrankos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Kadarka. The fruit comes from Vesztergombi's 30 hectares of vineyards in the Szekszárd wine region of Hungary. Most of the vines were replanted and are relatively young, but there are some really old plantations as well.

Ageing in 300L and 500L oak barrels for 24 months and a further 6 months in bottles.
