2010 Rosé Luise

Offers lush aromas of ripe strawberries, cherries and cassis. On the palate juicy and mellow with a minerlic note. In the end soft and full, the aromas are layering quite long on the palate.

This Rosé is made from Pinot Noir and Merlot. One part of the wine is made with redwine techniques, bleeding the juice fromt the tank with the so called saignée technique, extracting a clear, bright cherry hue from the skins. The other part was picked as a rosé wine. 90% of the juice fermented cold in stainless steel tanks. 10% were fermented in used oak, aging for 5 months on the yeast lees. This partial sur-lie aging adds a pleasing roundness to the mouth without noticeable oak flavours.
