Tasting

Clear, brilliant, intensive pink-rosé, violet lilac blossoms, gentian. Like a blue bouquet of flowers, well-meant compliments inclusive. Sweet peach and crisp bananas, rosehip puree, some rasperries and a touch of fresh mint, perfectly ripe Mieze Schindler strawberries. Semi-sweet, backed by animating acidity. Elegant creamy texture with fragile fruit sweetness. Raspberries flirt with freshly picked William pears. The tiny, cheeky rosé elves still dance on the palate when the bottle is empty. Vivacious style and serious volume combines with an enchanting finesse on the finish.

Pairing

Ice-cold aperitif, pheasant with cranberries and pink pepper, exotic sticks of mango & Cajun chicken, beetroot soup, salmon and all that can be conjured of it. Sheep cheese with chutney of dried tomatoes, grilled water melon and fried lardo, nashi-pignoli salad. With pepper/strawberry sorbet. Spinach ravioli with caramelized bread crumbs. Goes well with a nice chat – better, “exchange of experiences” or simply to enjoy! Explicitly for those who wouldn`t order a wine at all – a real darling of the public. Privately also loved by male consumers.

Making

Harvested end of september, in six runs selected from grapes for the Blaufränkisch Reserve 2014. Hand picked into small boxes.

De-stemming into red wine tanks, after 4 hours racking off the juice (ca. 12%). Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks over four weeks or longer. Interruption of fermentation by separation of the must from the lees and cooling. Resulting in a natural residual sugar content.

Serving temperature Keep it cool – really cool!
