Grown on the loess terraces of the Kamptal, Schlosskellerei Gobelsburg is one of our favorite Rosé’s year in and year out. Sustainable and estate grown Zweigelt and St. Laurent are pressed and fermented in stainless steel, producing a wine that is fresh and fruit forward, but with elegance and minerality. Very light in colour and some nougat and Turkish honey notes. Cool and refreshing. Lean and piquant despite the dominance of Zweigelt, this wine points in the Burgundy direction. So fresh and long. Let the Summer begin!
"For the Cistercien Rosé, the Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir grapes grown in the cooler sites of Gobelburg and Langenlois are used. After the harvest, the grapes – still with their stems – are softly pressed and then fermented. This type of rosé is somewhat similar to a white wine because no acid reduction is used to emphasise the fine fruity character with a streamlined elegance. Its fragrance and fruit nuances of wild cherry and fresh berries make this Rosé an optimal universal food companion." -Winery
