2016 Reichsrat von Buhl "Bone Dry" Spätburgunder Rosé Pfalz

SKU #1301300

Winery Notes: "We at Reichsrat von Buhl rely on dry wines. On really dry wines. Dry in German wine regulations can be up to 9g/L of residual sugar. And that is not dry. Or not dry enough. At least not for us. With us is "dry" between 0 and 4g residual sugar. But on the bottle, the law is to just put "dry" on it. Therefore, we have considered visualizing our type of dry, namely bone-dry, and especially on the label. The next consideration was to integrate the respective wine aromas visually into the skull, which stands for "bochentrocken". Et voilà - von Buhl Bone Dry was born!" This Spätburgunder Rosé has less that 1g/L residual sugar! At a very moderate 12% Alc and racy 7.2g TA...this is a fresh, zesty, palate cleansing rosé that is super refreshing and versatile. Perfect for summer sipping. (p.s. the label is pretty awesome and changes under a black light too - perfect for Halloween / Día de los Muertos!) Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Germany Wine Buyer

Very nice floral aromatics and sure... It is completely dry on the delicate palate. Reminiscent of a Sancerre rosé. The cool label sure makes it stand out in a crowded rosé line up these days.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
