Huber’s Zweigelt Rosé is a beautifully refreshing, salmon pink rosé with aromas of red berries, hay and blossom, with hints of honey. On the palate, the wine’s freshness derives from a bright acidity but it simultaneously offers a slight creaminess and roundness which really balances the wine.
Food Matching: A gorgeous summer wine, this rosé goes very well with fish such as trout, or with light meat and poultry. Also makes a great accompaniment to lighter barbeque dishes. Or just chilling with friends in the summer sun. Serve around 8 to 10 Degrees C to preserve those fantastic fruit flavours.
The Huber vineyards are sited in the Traisental region of Austria, this is the newest wine Appellation in the country only developed in 1995. It currently has around 132 vineyards and its innovational approach to wine making is at the forefront of of the resurgence of Austrian wine. The Zweigelt grape was developed in Austria in 1922 so is considered a national treasure.
The Zweigelt Rose is produced with grapes from different single vineyard parcels from the Traisental where the vines are between 10 and 50 years old. A selection is made of the best, physiologically ripe grapes, which are then crushed, left in contact with thier skins for 2 hours, pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The wine is then kept on the lees for 3 months before bottling.
