VELUE ~ Rosé Cabernet 2019

Winery Bioweingut Johannes Zillinger

Region Niederösterreich, Austria

Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
ProfileJuicy, rich, deep in color. Lots of raspberry and watermelon notes. Perfect for heartier cold climates, but also very juicy and great for the summer.
Grape GrowingGrapes are grown biodynamically, and hand-harvested. The Cabernet and Syrah for these grapes come from the coldest parts of the hill. While these do face south and east, these are at the bottom of the hill and also often covered in shadow. The grapes are not necessarily harvested earlier, they just take a bit longer to ripen due to the aspect and elevation.
WinemakingThe majority of grapes (95%) are pressed after 10 hours of maceration. The rest (5%) is skin fermented for a short time in qvevri. The blend is the aged on lees for 4 months in stainless steel before being bottled.
