Superior Bull's Blood from Eger, rich and complex. Decanter wine of the year 2020

The philosophy of the family-owned, multi-award-winning St. Andrea winery is to create expressive wines of character by combining a traditional approach with modern winemaking methods. Their main focus is on indigenous varieties while paying the utmost attention to the uniqueness of individual terroirs and vineyards. By putting their heart and soul into crafting each bottle, the father-and-son team at St. Andrea is providing you with wines of outstanding quality that reflect the great potential of the Eger region.

Tasting Note: What more could you ask for from a Bull's Blood. The nose is complex and deep. Red cherry, red berries and black fruits complement oak, chocolate and sweet smoked spice. A medium body with elegant minerality is indicative of the volcanic, cool climate Eger terroir. Soft, ripe tannins and a fine acidity set this wine up perfectly for food pairing and ageing, if you can wait.
