A wine with a long history in Hungary dating back to a famous battle in the 1500s, the Binder family has been producing this cult classic Bull’s Blood for more than 50 years.
Unlike the Hungarian ‘Bikaver’, the family blend comprises of two great Barossa varieties, Shiraz and Mataro. To give more intensity and complexity to the wine, it’s made using only the Mataro pressings taken from the Chri-Ro estate’s bush vine Mataro, planted in the 1880s. This very special fruit is blended with estate grown, premium Shiraz – some of the Hanisch Shiraz barrels even make it into this wine.
Intense aromas and flavours of spice, red berry fruits, with hints of chocolate & more earthy characters are prevalent in this wine. It’s full bodied, yet perfectly balanced. Certainly one to enjoy with a long, slow braise of lamb or beef.
James Halliday Wine Companion 2019: 93 points “It’s quite striking for the density of flavour packed into this wine. Starts with ripe plums, mocha, ferrous, salty-seaweed and dried herbs, then moves over to the solidly oaked notes of sweet cedar and cloves. And yet it manages to stay afloat, never falling into the too big and heavy category, just drying on the finish.” Drink to 2030
