Törley Wine

Törley is the leading Sparkling Wine producer in Hungary. It was founded by József Törley in 1882 in Budafok and over the course of history became one of the leading sparkling wine producers in Europe. The Talisman range of wines comes from this highly regarded producer, and, as well as Bull's Blood, we also stock a Dry Furmint and Grüner Veltliner under the same label.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of dark fruits, and ripe plums balanced with notes of black pepper and hints of autumnal leaves.

Food Matches

Stylish choice, and the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats and hard cheeses.

Vinification

The grapes for this stunning Hungarian wine are hand harvested in late October from vineyards near the town of Eger. They are then fermented with skins in stainless stell tanks for 12 days to enhance the frehness of the fruit flavours, being fermented in Hungarian oak barrels for 6 months, to enrich the bold dark fruit and peppery notes.
