Wine with ice – not desecration!
“The ultimate local summer wine and best thirst quencher we are not ashamed to enjoy with ice cubes or sparkling water as well”– says Sauska Winery about their 2017 Siller wine from Villány. And indeed, the dark pink wine is more full bodied, more complex than a crispy rosé, thus it is perfect with summer grill dishes, or as the staff itself suggests: siller is a superb refreshment in the summer heat, and it remains fruity and tasty even when deluted with ice cubes. The Swabish style wine has a darker pink colour, and at Sauska it is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Kékfrankos, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. “Cherries, strawberries, sour cherries, and oriental spices lead the nose with a touch of butter. Fresh vanilla and light tannins dominate the mouth feel. More than a rose and lighter than a red wine. Bold, sensual and very attractive, with a super light touch of oak.”
