An elegant rosé for all seasons, the Roxanich Portorose is made out of the indigenous grape variety Borgonja Istriana.
An innovative rosé, created as hommage to the chic Adriatic resort of Portorose, its aroma reminds of walking in the garden when picking up first roses in the season.
The Roxanich Portorose is an entirely innovative expression of a rosé, giving its best to a distinctive gourmet palate, with an intense bright color illustrating nuances of rosehip, hibiscus and pomegranate. The wine offers intense and structured sips of an elegantly bodied variety of spicy and earthly aromas. One recalls notes of fresh raspberries, cranberries, strawberries with a hint of lavender.
The Roxanich Portorose is a dry rosé with aspects of complex fruit and herbs, and a light tannic grip on the palate, medium acid in its body, and an intense taste from the first sip.
Although the Roxanich Portorose started its voyage as a simple rosé refreshment for the warmer months, it has since matured into a wine that can be enjoyed year-round for a refreshing reminder of summer.
