Rosé 2017

About the Vineyard

The Nahe region is named after the river that traverses the valleys of the forested Hunsrück Hills until it joins the Rhine River in Bingen.  Although the Nahe is one of the smaller German wine regions, its extraordinary range of soil types is second to none. For this reason, the region is able to produce quite diverse wines from relatively few grape varieties. Grapes for this Pinot Noir Rosé grow on soils mixed with loess, loam and quartzite. Climate: balanced, mild, relatively little rain.

Tasting Notes

The long ripening period for this Pinot Noir Rosé from the Nahe region in combination with processing similar to the production of white wine result in fruitiness, freshness and crispness. With hints of raspberries and strawberries this wine is simply mouth-watering and delightful.

Food Pairing

Rosé wines are characterized by their fresh, subtle and refined way. That is why they work very well with strong and even spicy dishes. Their subtle nature and discreet crispness form a very nice background to powerful food. Try this Rosé with starters, pasta and meat dishes.
