On the south side of the Danube, 1 hour west of Vienna,3rd generation winemaker Christoph Hoch farms biodynamically and organically [certified]. He uses specific herbs and grains in the vineyard to bring vital nutrients to the soil. He is famous for blending vintages, feeling it’s the best expression of the terroir and grape. Zweigelt grapes [2018 harvest] are pressed white, while still fermenting, Sankt Laurent and Muskat Ottonel [skin fermented from the 2017 vintage] are added. From @bowlerwine “The bubbles in the bottle are entirely from the first fermentation. It’s spends six to eight months on the lees, allowing the tannins to come into balance with the bubbles. It’s a brut nature, with still wine added back to replace the disgorged lees.” Coral-orange in colour, with aromas of grapefruit, strawberry, saline minerality and dusty , chalky earth. Grapefruit, blood orange, lemon, rhubarb, fresh acidity shimmer across a chalky mineral backbone. Fine, consistent fizz rolls through and buoys an almond streak on the crisp, saline mineral finish. 70% Zweigelt, 20% Sankt Laurent, 10% Muskat Ottonel 10.5% Alcohol Christoph Hoch ‘Rosé Rurale’ NV #vinobiologico #vinvivant #biodynamicwine #organicwine #vinonaturale #lowinterventionwine #vinnature #vinobiodinamico #nofilter #drinkbetterwine #austrianwine #sparklingwine #vinofrizzante #vinbio #winereview #ros #vinbiologique #sparklingros #vinbiodynamie #naturewein #vinbiodynamique #instavino #winestagram #instawine #christophhoch #roserurale #caravino
