Weingut Schnabel Rose 2019
Regular price $83.00
For the first ever time in Australia, Eva and Karl's quite incredible rosé. Now, two things set the 2019 rose apart from the rest of the wines. Firstly, this was one of only two wines pressed directly post harvest (the other wines macerated on destemmed skins all the way through ferment) and, secondly, this is the only wine that spends its entire upbringing in tank (the other wines all seeing time in barrel for elevage).
What this creates is a very different style of wine for the domaine. The relaxed, ultra fine tannins of the rest of the range, with their defined, thirst quenching minerality are here replaced with sleek primary fruit, supple yet vibrant primary phenolics and strikingly inviting and delicate aromatic properties. Such an experience. - Cam Burton, importer
