2019 Christina Zweigelt Rosé
The Pannonian climate with the cool winds of the River Danube brings a very ripe, but also fresh cherry-fruit to the Zweigelt grapes resulting in wines with aromatic fruit, smooth tannins and no shortage of elegance. Grapes are hand harvested and direct pressed to stainless steel tanks, with just a few hours contact with the skins to provide colour. Fermentation takes place under temperature control and lasts about two weeks. The wine rests for another two weeks and then is racked once, then rests on the lees for another 6 weeks. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.
Where: Carnuntum, Austria
How: Zweigelt is one of those wines that pairs well with fish and this rosé is no exception
