Our Notes: Janos Eszterbauer is a 10th generation wine maker in the red wine district of Szekszárd. South of Budapest, north of Croatia at a latitude between Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, the ancient loess hills of Szekszárd have been planted to vineyards since before the Celts. It has long been prized for its dark spicy red blends ominously labeled Bikaver or Bulls Blood. The wines are so popular locally that little of the best examples leave the area. We are lucky to finally be getting some from one of our favorites. Eszterbauer is about honoring the ancient traditions of the region and family. Eszterbauer's "Tüke" Bikavér is a fine example of a modern, well-made 'Bullsblood'. Typical for a Bikavér from Szekszárd there is a fair amount of Kekfrankos and Kadarka in the cuvee. Spicy and deep, yet easy to drink with only 14% Alcohol this wine pairs well with BBQ meats, burgers, and spaghetti Bolognese.
