Summer 2014 – For me it’s rosé

We asked ten of our wine shop assistants what they’re drinking this summer. They arrived at the theme and compiled their lists accordingly and thus it’s all very subjective. A personal top list, stemming from mutual experiences: originating from our weekly tastings, professional trips, indeed often from customers’ feedback. While it may be somewhat subjective, we’re also convinced it’s sufficiently professional.

Finally, it’s truly hot. As far as I’m concerned, ice-chilled rosé tastes even better now, whether by itself or as a frocks (spritzer), the latter along with the football World Cup. Crispy, fresh and thirst-quenching, and that’s just fine. They are pleasant, fruity and perform consistently. What’s new and very much welcome is that more sophisticated and elegant rosés have appeared, so if I look for something made in a southern French style for an evening, I can find them among the products of Hungarian winemakers. My list is simple: every rosé should be fruity, fun and pleasurable. And these are exactly like that.
