Ramonda is a wine with a story. This semi-dry organic rosé wine from Marselan grape variety got its name from a flower Ramonda Nathalie. Ramonda is a family of plants that when it completely dies, even months later, it can be revived by a glass of water. We like to think that a glass of our Ramonda will revive you during hot summer days just as well.
The story. Way back in 1884 a court physician to King Milan of Serbia, dr. Sava Popović, was exploring the Dry Mountain near the town of Niš in central Serbia with his buddy Josif Pančić, a famous botanist, when he chanced upon this plant with beautiful pinkish flowers. He took it to Josif who was delighted, as it turned out to be an unknown member of Ramonda family. He told Sava that, as its discoverer, he has a right to name it. Sava promptly named it after the queen, Nathaly. The queen didn’t like Sava at all, as he was the main partner of king Milan in fooling around with young courtiers, and this was obviously an attempt to get into her graces. Alas, a few months later the queen found the king in bed with three young ladies and promptly left for Vienna, never to return to Serbia.
Back to wine. While the wine is semi-dry, meaning it has some residual sugar and one can taste a faint sweetness, it also has a lot of acidity which more than covers this sweetness and makes it very lively and refreshing. Even hard-core only-dry wine drinkers have found it pleasing. Floral aromas give way to fresh white fruits as the wine areates and warms up in the glass.
Medium body and ample acidity make Ramonda a very versatile wine. You can enjoy it as an aperitif, but you can also pair it with grilled meats, fish and seafood stews, salad meals, and dishes eaten cold. Serve very cold, straight from the fridge, as an aperitif. For food pairing, let it warm in the glass for some minutes to a temperature of 7ᴼC-9ᴼC.
