By Gerardo Corleone –
I have to admit that I’m not drinking Rosé wines so often especially because there many one’s on the market which show lots of residual sugar and nearly no typicity, but when I heard about the cooperation between Braunewell and Dinter I immidiately told myself: “Give Rosé another chance” – and I did so!
They began the cooperation with the view to produce a high-class Rosé as you can also understand from the whole packaging. Two german wine writers said that it probably is Germany’s best Rosé and could compete with some of the big Rosé names from France (Provence). I say that it might be no coincidence as they only have an average yield of 35 hl/ha – For a Rosè that’s just Incredible!
A blend of St. Laurent, Pinot Noir and a dash of Merlot, fermented spontanoeusly and aged only in french barrique with malolactic fermentation – 6 months on the lees! That’s also not your usual method!
Intensive bouquet full of wild straw- and raspberries with lovely twists of wet rose petals, crushed granite and a dash of vanilla. Creamy-juicy mouthfeel with a great overall balance. The aromas of ripe peach and citrus show off really serious and pair well with the smokey-mineral elements from the oak. The crispy acidity leads to an elegant-zesty finish. Pretty long aftertaste of orange peel and roasted almond.
Wow! This is a hack of a Rosé and by far the best I’ve ever had – I can understand why they call it “Germany’s best Rosé”! For 25 bucks it is of course not cheap, but it is an experience you should not miss. I need a Magnum bottle of this one Master Braunewell!
Overall harmony: 6/7
Rating: 16/20 – Really good wine and I can also detect some potential for storage!
Drink: now – 2022
