A dark-skinned grape variety (known in the US as Agria), with deeply pigmented flesh, most commonly used to enhance colour in blends. It forms an important part of Egri Bikavér. However, I had the chance to try this as a varietal from Szeczkő pince. Luscious dark berries, perfumed mouth-filling flavours, beautiful dark violet in the glass. Only 445 bottles were produced, so sadly I don’t think I’ll be able to get my hands on another bottle.
