Egon Schmitt Rosé Spätburgunder

DKK 115,00

Character: Tempting, innocent, seductive

Well, this is one of the nicest Rosé wines I tried in a long time. Based on Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), we have the full complexity and delicacy of great red wine, while keeping the freshness and sweetness of Rosé wine. This wine you will drink on a warm summer afternoon, and you will not even notice that it is gone. Its aromas include lots of strawberry and raspberry, floral notes, as well as a hint of delicate licorice. A beautiful combination that will make sure that you do not limit yourself to one bottle once you got started J.

The story behind

I discovered the Egon Schmitt wine estate when traveling the Pfalz in summer 2020. During dining in a local restaurant in Bad Durkheim (the Kaesbuero, highly recommended!), I had the pleasure of tasting Mr. Schmitt’s Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. I immediately loved the wines’ clear profile, precise expression of their terroir, and their abilities as food pairing wines.

the next day, I went to the estate and had a tasting with Mr. Schmitt senior who is 80 years old by now. During a pleasant visit, I had the chance to taste most of his wines and hear lots of anecdotes and stories. When he told me that he turns 80 years the coming Monday, I barely believed him, as he looked rather like 70. His answer? “A life out in fresh air, and every day a glass of wine, or sometimes two.”

So, for me, it was out of the question that I had to import these wines 🙂
