In a nutshell: An interesting and little seen sweet, but not overly rich Hungarian red dessert wine
The lowdown: A naturally sweet red wine from Hungary and no, it's not from Tokaj for a change. This comes from the Eger region a little to the south west. It's made from the light skinned indigenous Kadarka grape variety and has a sweet almost port-like nose with a fruity, medium sweet palate, a clean, fresh acidity and nicely light tannins.
When to drink: Not one you'll see very often. It's ideal for after dinner and fantastic with mature hard cheese.
