Less sweetness, more content is an apt way to describe this refreshing rosé. Made from the traditional Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) grape, the wine surprises with its deep, eye-catching pink. Elegant nose of fresh fruit - red berries and cherries. Vibrant acidity with red and black fruit on the palate, and hints of citrus. More extraction here than in a light rosé, but it works well in this balanced, fully dry wine. Long, well-rounded, citrusy finish.


Food pairing

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

Serving temperature: 11-13°C


Expert Opinion

Elizabeth Gabay - Master of Wine - 89 points - Decanter April 2021

Light pink-red. Nose of red fruit and blue floral aromas. On the palate, the cooler northern climate of Eger is reflected in the fresh red berry fruit character, along with a fine mineral structure and vibrant, fresh acidity. The whole melds together to create an easy, supple, nice summer rosé.
