The salmon colored NV Reserve Brut Rosé is based on the 2015 vintage and blends Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt sourced from Langenlois, Kamptal and Gumpoldskirchen, Thermenregion in Lower Austria (Niederösterreich). The beautifully colored wine opens with gorgeous aromatic fruits of red currant, wild strawberries, sweet cherries and brioche. Round and fruity on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, intense and structured Austrian sekt that was disgorged in July 2018 with a dosage of two grams per liter, and is still young after spending two years on the lees. Due to the ripe, aromatic fruit and fuller body, this tastes rounder (even sweeter) and more fruit-intense than the highly delicate and refined extra brut. The brut rosé has structure and more red wine character but all the finesse and elegance you may expect from the finest sparkling wines. Tasted September 2018.
