TASTING NOTES BY LENZ M. MOSER
“With this Rosé from Ningxia I created an own style of Rosé for our château – reminding me of my holidays in Provence/France, enjoying the light hearted and refreshing style of the region’s signature wines. The super light colour signals the freshness already, which is confirmed on the palate with its fresh and luscious modern style. Completely unoaked and vinified in stainless steel for extra freshness and kept chilled at every stage of wine making. The “new thing“ is the combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Merlot: Cabernet brings the raciness, the bon vivant, the spirit lifting element, and the Merlot adds complexity and the smooth elements. The goal, to present a palate grabbing and a “friendly“ wine, has been achieved at 100% – friendly in terms of approachability and also in terms of food friendliness. I love Rosé – this one in particular!”
