Vibrant and racy, bone dry of course.
Tasting Notes: Flamboyantly pink. Aromas of wild raspberries. Made from 100% Spatburgunder (German for Pinot Noir) this is a wine of depth, pure fruit flavours of strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and citrus with lovely mineral textured complexity. Bone dry with delicious mouth watering acidity, so typical of a German rose - vibrant and racy. Finishing long with spicy hints.
Rosé is a matter of the heart for Von Buhl - which is why they don‘t have the typical saignée or rosé as a by-product of red wine vinification - instead for them, rosé is always an independent main product. The grapes are destemmed and remain on the mash for 8-14 hours. After that they are gently pressed with only 50% juice extraction. Fermentation and Maturation partially in stainless steel and used barrique barrels. And of course: no residual sugar!
