2020 Lichtenberger-Gonzalez Muschelkalk Rose

Regular price $24.00

In Stock: 0

Austrian Martin Lichtenberger and Spaniard Ariana González met during winery internships in California, fell in love, and eventually moved back to Austria to take over Martin's parents' winery. They practice certified organic farming of vines in limestone (= Muschelkalk in German) and slate soils on the northwestern shore of Lake Neusiedl in Austria and minimal intervention in the cellar. This wine is a rosé of blaufränkish, pinot noir, and zweigelt. The wine ferments long and slow and is deliberately aged in bottle for several years to gain complexity. It's a beautiful salmon-pink color. In the mouth, it's savory, substantial, and even a touch serious. Drink it, not too cold, with salmon, sausages, paneer tikka, or, yes, the Thanksgiving meal.
