I'm sorry. I just don't see the appeal here. Tastes like someone dump a flower bed into pool water. Almost undrinkable for me and everyone else at the table.

Heidi Schrock 2014 Rosé Biscaya, Burgenland | 12% | From the warm continental (what they call Pannonian) climate of Neusiedlersee-Huggeland in Burgenland –Austria’s eastern most wine region pressed against the Hungarian frontier, this vintage seems to have dropped the St Laurent of previous vintages and is made of 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Pinot Noir although Heidi admits to using eight varieties in all –each in supporting roles. It’s a beautiful rosy red with a fragrant headful of umeboshi pickled plums of Japan for their tension of salty tart fruit and their fragrant shiso perilla leaf lift, but other fruit wafts up bright and fresh. Red currants and white cherries all carry over as well onto the palate –a scrumptious sip of tang and texture, brine and savor –for which it bears that saltwater taffy charm that I love about this rosé –in a watering-at-the-corners-of-the-mouth sort of way. It’s appealing in a way I’d never known before it –like feelings of fervor among inchoate lovers before which everything seemed so certain and after which the world seemed wide. Prepare yourself for a first kiss where red fruit orchards meet the sea. Food? Who needs food? …if I were to dream up a dish for this specifically it might involve a crispy rendered duck breast with a compote of those gamey black currants but you name it: pork chops, schnitzel, tempura, or citrus poached fish of the herring family.

This is a terrific rosé - spicy character on the nose and elegant on the palate. Simultaneously crisp and voluptuous, it is as satisfying a rosé as I've had in some time. Beautiful and a great value

Very earthy nose with sweet mid red fruits. The fruits are thick and slightly syrupy. Dark cherries, cherries, strawberry preserves, cranberry juice, soft spice, nice soft earth, refined pronounced chalk, big acidity and a good round full finish. Mix of seven different grapes 🍇.
