Tasting

Clear, brilliant, intensive raspberry-rosé, violet lilac blossoms at mother´s day, gentian. Like a blue bouquet of flowers presented with empathic compliments. Juicy peach and bananas al dente, rosehip puree, some raspberries and a touch of fresh mint, perfectly ripe Mieze Schindler strawberries. Semi-sweet, backed by an animating acidity. Elegant creamy texture with vibrating fruit sweetness. Greengages flirt with dew-fresh William pears. The tiny, cheeky rosé elves keep dancing on the palate until the bottle is empty. Vivacious style and serious volume combines to an enchanting finesse on the finish – simply mirroring top grape material. Semi-sweet is sexy!

Pairing

Ice-cold aperitif (qualified for winter gardens), pheasant with cranberries and pink pepper, exotic sticks of banana & Cajun chicken, beetroot soup, salmon and all that can be conjured of it. Sheep milk cheese with chutney of dried tomatoes, grilled water melons and fried lardo, nashi-pignoli salad. With pepper/strawberry sorbet. Spinach ravioli with caramelized bread crumbs. Goes well with a nice chat - much more, "exchange of experiences" or simply to enjoy! Explicitly for those who wouldn`t order a wine at all - really everybody´s darling. Privately also loved by numerous male consumers.

Making

Harvested end of September, in six runs selected from grapes for the Blaufränkisch Reserve 2018. Hand picked into small boxes.

De-stemming into red wine tanks, after 3 hours racking off the juice (ca. 10%). Cooled fermentation in stainless steel tanks over four weeks or longer. Interruption of fermentation by separation of the must from the lees and cooling. Results in a natural residual sugar content.

Serving temperature Chill it - and serve it really cool!
