Great, focused Spätburgunder rosé from the Nahe. Another solid effort from Schäfer-Frölich. Appears there's barely any skin contact; pours a very pale, bright, almost silver-y copper color. Lean 'n' mean. A bit reductive at first; splash it into a decanter a bit before serving and it'll help it blow off though. On the nose, a pile of wet, crushed stone, cranberries, slightly underripe watermelon, a slight herbaceousness and a bit of lager-y lees character. The palate is pretty congruent in term of flavor to the aromatic character, with bright, high acid and just a touch of RS to help round it off and add a little extra oomph to the fruit character. Light, lean body. Incredibly food-friendly wine. Nice companion in this 95 degree heat.

A nice kickoff to spring weather. Very pale color, bright, missing a bit of acidity I was hoping for with this producer. Really good...$24.

Great light rose of Pinot noir. Fruity but crisp. You get a bit of the noir earth too. This would be a nice cheese wine.

Fruity, earthy taste. Light to medium body (paired with smoked goat cheese)

Citrus and crushed stone nose. Floral, bright citrus, apricots, and crisp acidity. Clean and light.

Rose of Pinot that is almost pale gold. Citrus and floral nose. Bright cherry, citrus, great minerality and acidity. Dull color, bright taste.
