2019 Bencze Blau - Hungary (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (11)|
This lovely, unusual, medium-bodied red from Hungary is vinified from Blauburger, a hybrid of the Eastern European varietals Blaufrankisch and Blauer Portugieser. The grapes are fermented whole-cluster, hand- (and foot-) crushed, and aged in stainless steel, with no fining, filtration or sulfur added. With notes of deep purple fruit, black olives, and a bit of barnyard funk, you’ll find this savory, medium-bodied wine tells the story of a vineyard on a hill above Hungary’s largest lake, and the volcanic soil you’ll find there. Try with a classic chicken paprikash!
