June is soon here and hopefully warmer days. Nothing beats soaking up the sun with a great Rosé wine. This week we have gone for an absolute bargain that is also of the highest quality!
We like German wines here in KulTour. Usually we go for the fresh and complex Rieslings that are just superb. But the Germans plant other grapes as well and with global warming the Pinot Noir-driven wines from Germany have become better and better. This week we have found our wine at a producer that is well known here in Norway, Leitz. They have several wines in the Vinmonopolet, mostly Rieslings and ranging in price from 150,- all the way up to almost 1000,- for their TBA. One common denominator for the wines of Leitz is good quality along the line and this also applies for their rosé made from Pinot Noir. And at a price of just 150,- NOK this is a real bargain!
Leitz Rheingau Pinot Noir Rosé 2022 - 150,- kr
Very pale rose colour. Citrus, strawberries and lime on the nose with hints of herbs. As always with Leitz, great acidity that gives good structure to the wine. Red apples and red berries in the mouth with great length. Just a great quality wine!
This is a drink with friends wine, but will go well with white fish, salads and chicken.
