NEW RELEASE....DON'T LAUGH, REALLY GOOD! THIS GUY IS THE MAN!

Winery Notes:
The rose is a selection of ripe red grapes from different sites and soils. This cuvee is mainly Pinot Meunier, Portugieser, and a small amount of Pinot Noir. The grapes were hand harvested, gently pressed, followed by a short maceration period. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, and the wine spent 4 months on its lees before bottling.

Here we have the deepest of the German Roses, both in color and in flavor. Made from Pinot Noir, Portugieser and Pinot Meunier and the aromatics reminded of walking into a Farmer’s market. That cool mix of fresh, ripe fruit, wet herbs, flowers and soil. Nice and weighty in the mouth with more floral notes and a cut of sliced lemon. The finish is nice and long and because of the texture you have many pairing options here, grilled skirt steak, grilled chicken, sausages or pork chops. Such a fun wine.
