Schlossmühlenhof, Spätburgunder Trocken, “Blanc de Noirs” Rosé 2013, Rheinhessen, Germany
Tasting Note: A rosé in name only.
This wine is pale-lemon in color with only the slightest touch of detectable pink.
On the nose there are pear, under-ripe peach and mineral notes.
You could be fooled into thinking this is a warm-climate, New World wine as it is bursting with tropical fruit, pineapple, pear, green apple and lemon citrus on the attack.
The full-bodied high-acidity wine balances well with its fruit character.
This pinot noir expresses its roséness on your tongue and could be mistaken for viognier or sauvignon blanc/semillon blend from the New World.
