The poor summer has postponed one of my favourite hobbies, drinking great rosé wines from Austria. Finally we had some warm weather so I ran to the Vinmonopolet and bought my favourite, Langmanns Schilcher Klassik and it didn’t disappoint.
The Langmann winery has traditions going back to 1746. Today it is run by Stefan Langmann and we in Norway are lucky because it is to us the export most of their wines! They use the local grape Blauer Wildbacher, a greap not grown in many places outside of Westeiermark where Langmann is situated. Their rosé has been a favourite of mine for years. It always has the same good quality, great acidity that makes it so fresh and fruity.

The first ting you notice is the acidity. It is so present, but never to much. It makes me think of red currants right away. The ones we would pick in late summer and eat to many of. It also has hints of wild strawberries. And it is so, so fresh.
This is great alone on a lazy, hot summers day. It will work well with some light barbecue as well and a fresh salad. Enjoy :-)
