ine has been made in Hungary since the Romans introduced viticulture about 1,500 years ago.Bull's Blood is one of the most recognized reds from Hungary and the wine most people have probably tasted or heard of, possibly along with the great dessert white Tokaji. But Hungary's wine industry has much more to offer, having evolved considerably in the past quarter century. Hungary has 22 wine areas, but they are usually grouped into five to seven larger regions.It seems the screw caps designate drink-now wines with corks for wines intended to be cellared.Only 1,560 bottles were made, which means this wine will be difficult to find, but worth the effort.Egri means the wine comes from the Eger region.The 2013 Egri Chardonnay is another quality wine. The big difference is a grand cru Chablis should not be drunk for at least a decade, while this wine is drinking well now, and will be magnificent in a decade.The 2012 Egri Bikaver, sealed with a screwcap, is a most unusual blend of eight grape varieties including Kadarka, Cabernet Franc and Kekfrankos.The two grape varieties combine nicely to provide complexity, with soft tannins and spicy aromas.
