Sauska Villányi Rosé

A vibrant and fresh wine that harmoniously combines bright acidity with sweet fruit flavors of ripe strawberry and elegant florals of hibiscus and wild flowers. The palate shows notes of green tea. This easy-drinking blend is balanced with excellent  minerality.
The perfect warm-weather wine that pairs excellently with seafood and barbecue. Also tempers spicy foods well as it cleans and refreshes the palate. Enjoy young for maximum fruit expression.

A blend of merlot, kekfrankos, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir and cabernet franc vinified in stainless steel, this rose shines in the glass, a gorgeous silver-streaked pink hue. The scent is explosive, a riot of fruit and flowers, like the first really warm, sunny day of spring; the flavor is just as effusive, floral and strawberry-full, with mouthwatering acidity and lightly peppery alcohol. For summer sausage or anything off the grill.

Perfectly dry, yet bursting with pure, ripe red fruit, Sauska’s rosé would be a refreshingly easy apéritif to be enjoyed anytime of the year. Made with a hefty dose of Blaufränkisch, it’s clean and fresh on the palate with pretty wildflower notes and zippy sour cherry acidity.
