Rotburger rose fermented on Grüner Veltliner skins?! It's a bit of a crazy idea, but the result is something magical. A vibrant nose of bright summer berries, soft rose petal and thyme. Zippy acidity is met but just enough tannin and spritz to make the wine difficult not to chug. Raspberry, sour cherry and white pepper lead the palate, with a cool, refreshing finish.

From the importer:
“The idea behind Rosa Marie is an extraordinary Rose wine with great drinkablity… Martin and Anna keep the Rotburger juice up to 12 hours on the skins in order to extract the bright cherry fruit character of the grape. After pressing this wine, which is fermented with native yeast they add some skins of Grüner Veltliner after approximately 3 days, to extract the spicy character of Grüner, and add some tannins. We keep the wine on these Grüner skins of the fermenting juice for 10 days. After pressing, they age 80% in stainless steel, and 20% in French oak (used barrels). Just before bottling Martin and Anna blend, and add 15 mg/L of sulfur. No fining and no filtration.”
