This bikavér by sebestyén cost nearly twice as much as the rest of the wines at the restaurant, but there was no question that we would get it. we didn’t get the chance to visit sebestyén and their wines came highly recommended by @elizabeth.gabaymw—she said the wines are on the elegant and i was immediately sold. it’s hard to make a conclusive statement since there are so many excellent bikavér wines in szekszárd but i’d be inclined to say this is my favorite. the judicious use of oak gives a different dimension to the aroma while the good fruit punches through the toasty, brown spice and vanilla. the kékfrankos forms the foundation of the flavor profile. the merlot lends a nice texture to the palate. the cabernet sauvignon gives a discreet visit on the nose and lingers at good bye. after some aeration, the wine becomes more charismatic as that small dash of kadarka appears more pronounced on the nose, leaving behind a syrupy, sweet rose-like aroma. an elegant wine with subtle, harmonized nuances and great length! super thanks to elizabeth for this excellent find.
Lunch sorted! we can’t wait to dive into this award winning rosé.
