Rosé

Villány 2019

Our new Rosé's backbone is Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch). By 2019, these junior team of red grapes reached the desired level of color intensity and aroma profile to be able to carry the blend, putting Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc in seriously charming frame. The crisp spring cherry scent in the cellar after pressing put our winemaking team in a cheerful mood and truly marked this year`s harvest! We decided to go with this clean, blush pink-black look that reflects the lighter color and young vibe of the wine. Bursting aromas, energy, ripeness and balance lead the nose, followed by fruits of the Mediterranean, especially lemon, lime, and grape. Quince, gooseberry, pear, pomegranate, and rhubarb dominate the light yet confident flavor profile. Fresh and balanced, long and even on the palate.

The Year

2019 was the driest winter of the last decade in Villány. Thanks to the winter, bud-break came earlier this year. The period from bud-break to flowering started with a warm April, followed by rainy May, which was the coldest in the last 8 years. Then a very hot June came followed by rainy, cold July and a nice August. We started the harvest with speed-picking for Rose in the last week of August, with the focus to preserve fresh fruitiness. The rest of the season was a bit hectic with warm weather and even frost. In spite of the ups and downs, the berries arrived in the processing room with perfect phenolic ripening, high potential alcohols, low malic acid content, and high color intensity.
