Grapes: Syrah, Sankt Laurent, Pinot Noir Style: Rosé ABV: 12% Production: Biodynamic Any added sulphites: Minimal Filtered: No Size: 75cl
A beautifully fresh rosé filled with red fruit flavours of strawberry and raspberry, topped off with a smokey earthiness - this is a wine that reminds you of apple strudel with its continuous play between rich flavours and fresh fruit, making for an incredibly energetic and ever-evolving wine with a deep character that's waiting to be discovered.
This wine bridges borders by blending Syrah grapes from Hungary with Sankt Laurent and Pinot Noir grapes from Austria. The grapes were hand harvested and the wine fermented naturally, spending ten days in large wooden fermenters, after which it was aged for eight months on the lees. Bottled unfiltered and without sulphur.
Franz Weninger is committed to his soils, with a particular respect for old vines, protecting and cultivating indigenous grape varieties of Austria and Hungary. He believes that he should champion his local heritage, and that this is the way to build a bridge from the past to the future. Franz is a winemaker who follows his nose. His winemaking and farming methods are modified and adapted every year and evolve continuously, in tandem with the development of his thoughts and mindset. He emphasises that the end to his agricultural and vinous education is nowhere in sight. This is part of what Franz loves about winemaking: the cultural journey. Secondly, in the face of global warming, he believes the answer - and the solution - lies in farming.
