One of the best Hungarian rosé wines: Sauska 2019 from Villány

Hungary is not (yet) a serious rosé player, but there are some pretty good bottles out there. Sauska makes one of the most reliable pink wines, and it might be the most refined one too.

Finesse is what makes it different to most Hungarian rosés. Poised, elegant, not a hair out of place. Crisp and refreshing, but acidity is integrated. There is some structure to it, well judged firmness that gives some length and seriousness without sacrificing lightness and drinkability. So enjoyable. A complete wine.
