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 crisp bananas, rosehip puree, some raspberries and a touch of fresh mint, perfectly ripe Mieze Schindler strawberries. Semi-sweet backed by 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.

Pairing

Ice-cold aperitif (to be served in winter gardens as well), pheasant with cranberries and pink pepper, exotic sticks of banana & 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 – really everybody´s darling. Privately also loved by numerous male consumers. Not for nothing, festival wine in Bregenz for five years now!

Making

Harvested end of september, in six runs selected from grapes for the Blaufränkisch Reserve 2016. 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. Resulting in a natural residual sugar content.

Serving temperature Keep it cool – really cool!
