BOLYKI Egri Rosé 2019

Less sweetness and more content are apt to describe this refreshing rosé. It is made from the traditional Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) grape, and 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. There is more extraction here than in a light rosé, but it works well in this balanced, fully dry wine. Ends in a 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.
