Tasting Notes

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.

Food Pairing Recommendation

The fruitiness of the wine goes very well with dishes including roast duck and plum sauce as well as pasta with tomato based sauces. For a match made in haven, try it with an indulgent black forest gateau and experience a delightful warmness and a perfect harmony of flavours.

About the Producer

The Vesztergombi family can look back on a rich tradition of wine making in the region around Szekszárd. This scenic landscape, where the Danube river meanders between intertwined valleys, provides the perfect conditions for growing red grapes with character. The winery's was reborn in 1991, resurrecting the family tradition. Its first Bull's Blood was released in 1993, the year when its founder, Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary, and since then it has created red wines that reflect this unique terroir.
