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.
Food Pairing Recommendation
An ideal aperitif on a warm summer day, or serve alongside light salads and tapas. Try with grilled poultry, baked white fish or a vegetable lasagne.
