This rosé is an interesting blend of two central European varieties: Zweigelt originates from Austria and is fairly common in parts of Hungary, while Medina is a Hungarian crossing that brings softness, fragrance and spiciness to the wine.
Delicately coloured rosé with a pale onion-skin hue. Youthful aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and raspberry on the nose; attractive and elegant. Vibrant, juicy fruit on the palate without too much sweetness; a lovely rounded mouthfeel overall. A well-made rosé with firm acidity and moderate alcohol, easy-drinking yet sophisticated.
Serving temperature: 9-10°C

Hungarian winemaker of the year in 2015, Frittmann is one of the top producers in the Great Plain. This is full of the vibrant acidity of Zweigelt, with the Hungarian Medina added to give fruity character. Bucket-loads of strawberry and raspberry jam, with a tutti-frutti charm and fresh acidity. A real crowd-pleaser.

The beguiling flowery taste of the lime honey combines perfectly with the nutty flavour of the sunflower oil and the slight-acidity of the mustard, all given a mouth-watering twist by the addition of sweet paprika smoked on aromatic beech wood, as well as a bit of hot paprika for that irresistible kick.
