Siller, also known as schiller, is one of the oldest styles of rosé wine. It is extremely rare nowadays, made only by a select few wineries with the necessary knowledge and expertise. This intriguing variety represents a cross-over between a full-bodied rosé and a lighter red-wine. Therefore, it is the perfect choice if you are looking for a 'rosé-plus', with added depth and character yet the same easy-drinking nature.
