The Sebestyén winery was established in 1998 in the Szekszárd region, one of Hungary’s best winemaking areas thanks to its ideal climate and boasting a history dating back to Roman times. The family-run winery produces high quality wines following the highest production standards, strict yield limitation and selection of only the best grapes. They combine ancient traditions with modern technology and knowledge of which grapes thrive in the local terroir to offer a selection of wines from both national and international varieties. Our connection to the estate dates to Csilla Sebestyen’s time as Sommelier for Scotland’s only 2 star Michelin restaurant, Andrew Fairlie.
Sebestyen Ivan-Volgyi Bikaver 2018
The 2018 Bikaver is, as ever a fantastic blend using both local and international varietals. 46% Kékfrankos, 23% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, 8% Kadarka and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Kadarka comes from a plot of very old vines, some of which are 70 years old! The grapes are from the very best parcels of Iván-valley located within Szekszárd region. Creating the perfect balance is always a challenge. Elegant, concentrated and balanced, aged 23 months in Hungarian and French oak barrels. It is a perfect example, which reflects the unique flavours of vineyards.
