DOBOSI Organic Kékfrankos Rosé 2021

An organic dry rosé wine made from the native Kékfrankos grape. Light salmon pink in colour, with an expressive nose full of sweet strawberry and beguiling candy aromas. The sweet fruitiness of strawberry and red fruit returns on the palate, supported by gentle but solid acidity. The intense minerality of the finish makes this an elegant and refined rosé, not just for warm summer evenings.


Food Pairing

Try with white fish, salads and light pasta dishes, or serve alongside fresh cheese such as Feta and Halloumi, or a creamy Camembert.

Serving temperature: 12°C


Expert Opinion

Elizabeth Gabay - Master of Wine - 91 points - Decanter April 2021

Dry herbal aromas, almost southern French garrigue in style. Luscious ripeness, typical of the Balaton region, balanced by delicate, crisp red fruit gained from cooler clay soils. A lovely juxtaposition of zingy redcurrants, cranberries and ripe creaminess, with silky texture giving a summer fruit compote finish.
