Rose of Lagrein/Zweigelt 2021

The 2021 Lagrein Zweigelt Rosé is all about body. Blackberries, raspberries, and menthol. Like a still cherry cola, but better. Bone dry and begging for a meal. Try grilled pork or adult lunchables–sorry, charcuterie.

"This rosé blend of half Lagrein and half Zweigelt shows ample intensity on the nose by way of crushed cherry, ripe strawberry, mixed Mediterranean herbs and a hint of asphalt. It's fully fleshed out on the palate, showing menthol-laced cherry wrapped in tannins that resemble the texture of peach fuzz. There's tension throughout thanks to bright acidity. This bold rosé is best enjoyed alongside a meal."--Alexander Peartree, Wine Enthusiast

Vineyard Notes
Winter 2021 was generally mild, with occasional snow and cold patches, but no winter injury was reported. The spring was slightly warmer than in recent years, especially in April; however, we did not see an early bud break nor the resulting damage of a late spring frost. Summer rainfall was frequent but so were the dry spells. Unfortunately, the wet and humid stretches didn't let up in the fall nor did we see lower nighttime temperatures. Consequently, we experienced increased disease pressure and lower sugars. Although we had to work twice as hard this year, the early intervention in the vineyards and additional work hand-sorting and culling on the crush pad has yielded yet another unforgettable vintage!
