This is a ravishing rosé - a deliciously bright, fresh pink from our friends in Romania. You loved the red Burebista, now try this. Bursting with ripe raspberry and strawberry with a little bit of creamy weight and very fresh. Top value too.
Lorena Deaconu is our favoured winemaker for the Burebista wines and she knows just how to capture all the bright fruit for both this pink and its sibling red. She loves Romania's native Feteasca Neagra (the Black Maiden) – Romania’s oldest grape variety. With that she blends both Cabernets and Shiraz, all handpicked. The 2020 grapes had such depth of colour in their skins, Lorena macerated the juice for a mere 30 minutes, to get its appealing light pink hue. She's a great winemaker, supplying wine to the Royal Court of King Michael of Romania. Burebista has a lovely forward aroma of summer berry fruit, bright citrus and leafy notes. A thoroughly refreshing pink on its own, with seafood, light noodle dishes or roasted squash and feta salad.
"You'll love the bright red fruits of this appealing rosé. It's great value too"
