"Deep pink and just glorious! Salty, sandy, fruit leather, wild raspberries, savoury. Perfect rosé. Such great chew and depth of fruit and substance. Gourmand! Yum. I love the bold gumption of this wine, but it is also pretty damn classy at the same time." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 16.5 points
Lively acidity, combined with subtle sweet fruit flavours and elegant aromas of fresh stone fruit, rosehip, citrus, raspberry and yellow fruits make this rosé a perfect, uncomplicated wine to enjoy on the terrace.
This dry cuveé is a blend of Dornfelder, Maunier, Portugieser and Pinot Noir grape varieties.
The vineyards are based in Schweigen on the German and Alsatian side. The vines are grown in rich sandstone and limestone soil, and are between 10 and 50 years old.
The grapes were carefully selected by hand and gently pressed after a short maceration period. The restrained fermentation and the further expansion took place in stainless steel vats. After five months on fine lees and gentle filtration, the wine was bottled in February 2020.
