2014 Heimann "Bikaver" (Bull's Blood) Hungary

SKU #1308378

From the importer: "While both Eger and Szekszárd can both legally make Bikavér (Bulls Blood), the soil, climate and styles are dramatically different. Kékfrankos is the base of the blend and Kadarka adds the “paprika like” spice while the Bordeaux varieties are well suited to add weight, texture and aromatics. What sets Heimann apart from everybody is Sagrantino. Inspired by Umbrian wines, cuttings were brought back and they enjoy the loess and sunshine. A blend of old vine Kékfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sagrantino, the wine is a successful balancing act between adhering to tradition while celebrating a much more connected wine world than the appellation has ever known."

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
