Rynn Rosé, Ansitz Rynnhof, 2019, Tramin, Alto Adige, Italy. We love Rosé with a heavy concentration of rich grapes like Lagrein, Merlot and Schiava. Lagrein is such a bold grape that it could dominate a Rosé. But Nathalie has found a way to balance it perfectly: ~50% Schiava, 25% Lagrein and 25% Merlot. This is Rosé as we envisioned it, and we plan to build Christina’s 2020 Rosé vintage on the bones of this wine. Each of the three grapes were harvested separately, and fermented in stainless steel without secondary fermentation. This wine is fresh and fruity, with a bright and inviting coral color, and solid structure. On the nose, aromas of rainier cherries and a subtle, very subtle, white pepper. Vibrant raspberry and tart cherry flavors, with the cherry flavor carrying through the finish. The heft of the Merlot helps the flavor linger longer than most Rosé we’ve ever had. This wine is an excellent aperitif, and we recommend it with duck and smoked fish, chicken or pork. As this wine warms in your glass, you will get a sense of its heft.
