Heumann Rose Kékfrankos 2019
Elegant and silky-smooth rose with pink grapefruit, pepper, orange, fresh cherries and thyme.
Heumann Kekfrankos is a dry, light-medium bodied rose wine from Villany, Hungary. It’s 100% Kekfrankos with 13.0% abv. Suitable for Vegetarians.
This rose has been farmed from one of Hungary’s leading red wine regions, Villány-Siklós. Here, Kekfrankos is perfectly suited to the loess and limestone soils; in fact the high proportion of limestone in Siklós leads to fruit with a distinct note of elegance and minerality. The resulting salmon-colour rose has a soft nose of cherry, orange rind and cranberry fruit. It’s very smooth with an elegant palate of spicy paprika and pepper over pink grapefruit, orange, fresh cherries and thyme. The finish has hints of apple, cherry stone and almonds. This is a real highlight of a rose!
Pairs beautifully with: Vietnamese dishes like Thit kho To, a dish with caramelised belly pork, or alongside BBQ food like chargrilled Mediterranean vegetables, grilled paneer, lamb or pork ribs. It’s also delightful with pizza, pasta bake and burgers.
Cheese pairing: Mature goat’s cheese like Tomme de Savoie.
