The Most Interesting Rosé in THE WORLD!
We have some great rosés in the store but this one is my favorite by far. Artner’s Rosé blend of Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch is completely unique and handsomely attractive at $12.99. Haven’t heard of Zweigelt or Blaufrankisch? That’s alright. They’re not your everyday table wines…unless you live in Austria.
Blaufrankisch, aka Lemberger, aka Kekfrankos is a late ripening dark skinned grape that yields spicy reds with flavors of dark cherries and dark berries. It usually produced wines with medium tannins and lively acidity. Zweigelt is a cross of Blaufrankisch and St. Laurent grapes which can produce exotic, floral and fruit forward reds that can be relatively light weight while complex at the same time. It’s success has made Zweigelt the most widely planted red grape in Austria.
This rosé shows aromas of ripe bing cherries and strawberries which follow through on the palate. It’s light on its feet but still has enough weight to be satisfying on its own or with a meal. So if you’re looking to try something new and get away from that fancy French rosé this summer, this fascinating Austrian wine may be just be the perfect rosé for those interested in trying something new.
