A serious proposition unlike your typical light rosé, rich and distinctive in character almost to the point of a red wine. A deep and vibrant rosé colour with an intense aroma of sweet spices, forest fruits including juicy redcurrants and a tantalising touch of herbs. On the palate you are greeted by a full-bodied, thick and meaty rosé with a creamy texture and warming alcohol. The wine is balanced by a beautiful acidity which allows the abundance of sweet spices and fruitiness to shine. This remarkable vintage culminates in an unusually long finish, making this an intriguing choice for rosé-sceptics and red wine lovers alike.
The fruitiness of the wine goes very well with dishes including roast duck and plum sauce as well as pasta dishes, specially those with tomato based sauces. For a match made in heaven, try it with an indulgent black forest gateau and experience a delightful warmness and a perfect harmony of flavours.

Vesztergombi Winery, Szekszárd - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
The Vesztergombi family looks back on a centuries-old tradition of winemaking in the region around Szekszárd in southern Hungary, where the River Danube meanders between rolling hills and fertile valleys. This scenic setting provides the perfect conditions for growing red grapes with character. The Vesztergombi winery was re-established in 1991, resurrecting the long-held family tradition. Its first Bikavér (Bull's Blood) was released in 1993, the year when founder Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary. Today, with three generations working together in the business, the winery continues to produce outstanding red wines that authentically reflect the unique terroir of the Szekszárd region.
If you find yourself short on time and lacking fancy ingredients, then with a just a couple of kitchen staples and some trusty Pick salami, you can create a divine pasta dish with ease.
