Spring time is Rosé wine time! The sun is out, it’s getting warmer and warmer day by day, the flowers are blooming, in general it’s a good time to enjoy some light and refreshing wines. Maybe that is why Rosé wines are is so popular now. It signals that something we love is just around the corner – summer! And this weeks wine is really a warm day in a bottle.
Krüger and Rumpf may sound like a spoof detective show from the old DDR, but the fact is that they are a reputable wine growing family that have made top quality wine in Nahe since 1980. Like all German wine growers, Riesling is the grape they grow the most, but their Spätburgunders are also getting rave reviews and thats the grape their Rosé is made from.
The vineyard for the Rosé is in a cool part of the Nahe which means that the grapes are harvested in late September, when they are ripe, aromatic and with moderate sugar content, giving a light and refreshing wine without too much alcohol.
Krüger-Rumpf Pinot Noir Rosé Dry 2019 - 164,90 kr
The colour is light and bright pink, almost a peach colour. On the nose you get wild strawberries, raspberries and hints of cherries as well. It had good acidity and minerality giving a fine freshness in the mouth. Easy to drink and enjoy as we wait for summer to come.
