This wine has been produced of the following sorts – Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon under “the white technology”. Their combination in one bottle is really a challenge. The grape is gathered and ferments separately. After having the young wine, it blends in suitable per cents. They are balanced and the desired harmony is reached. Rosé has a pale pink colour with some shades of salmon. It has freshness, tender fruit fragrance of red fruit, raspberries and black cherries, but at the same time you feel consistence of the taste. It is a wine which breaks the stereotypes for Rosé.
