Rose Kutjevo 2012 Commentary
Every year, Croatian wine scene gets richer in rose department. More and more of this kind find its way to the market. Yet, 2012 showed a new feature of Croatian rose- its diversity. The pink harmony of Kutjevo enology culture has been formed by mixing none less than three distinctive red sorts- cabaret sauvignon, merlot and zweeigelt. An ambitious and successful experiment!
When asked about food which would accompany Rose Kutjevo 2012, the experts suggested a simple slice of refreshing melon or pasta in red sauce with shrimps. It is a notable idea, but we can also try to balance a meal in terms of color. A salad of tomato, mozzarella, basil, olive oil and red pepper can go well with the light tones of this wine. Especially when in company of toast on which you rubbed some fresh garlic.
