The Rosé classics delicate pink is reminiscent of the colour of a shallot skin, with a spicy and fresh aroma, and both juicy fruitiness and stimulating tartness on the palate. Because of its fruitful flavour and optimal acidity the Rosé is perfectly suitable as appetizer.
On the variety and origins of this wine:
For the production of this pale-reddish wine, only red grapes are used. The light coloration is due to quick pressing of the juice from the grape skins. This Rosé consists largely of Zweigelt, a classic Austrian variety, which was created at the Klosterneuburg School of Winemaking when Professor Zweigelt crossed Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent.
