Villány rose: Vylyan Kakas 2022

That’s exactly how most Hungarian roses taste like.

Dark cherry color. Smells a bit artificial, like bubble gum. Light-bodied, balanced, round rather than acid driven, but it’s still crisp thanks to the CO2 and the phenolic grip on the finish. A simple, fair wine, but has refreshing values, just serve it well chilled on a hot day. 81 points. 1800-2000 HUF, widely distributed.
