TÓTH FERENC Egri Kadarka Siller 2020

Siller (pronounced Shiller) is a Hungarian and German speciality and is one of the oldest styles of pink wine. When making a siller, the grape skins are soaked in the juice slightly longer than with a rosé, hence its deeper colour and more concentrated texture. Extremely rare nowadays, this intriguing wine is essentially a crossover between a rosé and a light red; it is thus an ideal choice if you are looking for a 'rosé plus' with added depth and character yet the same easy-drinking nature.

A medium-bodied, youthful wine, pale ruby in colour and with a refreshing touch of fizz. Delicate aromas of sweet spices, honey and red fruits, especially strawberry and raspberry. The same mouthwatering fruit character dominates on the palate, with added notes of sour cherries and cranberries. Expect more chewiness and more substance than in a classic rosé. This lovely vintage has light acidity, moderate alcohol, and a good length finish.


Food Pairing

Try with smoked salmon, smoked ham or a salmon tartare. It also goes well with your Wednesday night pasta, or why not pair it with strawberries while lounging out in the summer sunshine?
