Description

2017 Meyer-Näkel Spätburgunder Rosé

Meyer-Näkel is an important name in the small but renowned Pinot Noir region of the Ahr in Germany. The estate holds three important Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) vineyards, and they produce Pinot Noir almost exclusively.

About 80% of the juice in this rosé bottling is free run (or saignée) that is bled from the newly pressed red wines in order to concentrate the must. In the new world, this often is cause for over-ripe rosé, but the modest alcohol levels and excellent natural acidity of the Ahr retains plenty of life and interest as a rosé bottling. It is also an affordable way to taste some fine juice that is kin to some much more expensive reds.

This Rosé is so good you have no idea. Elegant fruit of strawberry, peach, honey, melon and red cherries; refreshing wine with a lovely fruit-acidity-harmony. Elegant and complex with supple finish. One of the finest crafted rosés in the world that symbiotically pairs with a myriad of dishes from starters of hard cheeses, to seafood as well as poultry and savory pork.
