Winestyr Review

With the Rosé trend have come many, many expressions of Rosé that, frankly, just aren't very good. Rosé is at its best when it's light, crisp, dry, and floral and this Rosé from Rheingau, Germany is exactly that. The light Salmon color and relatively low alcohol hint at the old world-style juice that's in the bottle. On the palate, the wine is dry, with a refreshing zing of acidity, and a clean finish - perfect for enjoying outdoors. 200 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Rosé of Pinot Noir
  • From Rheingau, Germany

This is a great Rosé for year-round drinking, but is especially suited for the hot Summer months.
