2019 Kobal Sparkling Rosé of Blaüfrankisch
100% Blaufränkisch. Sustainably farmed. Brief maceration of 4 hours. Carbonated via Charmat Method (i.e. Fermentation is carried out in a pressurized tank to infuse the CO2 into the wine). In the capable hands of Bojan Kobal, the noble Blaufränkisch is transformed into a fresh, spicy, bone-dry sparkling rosé filled with cranberry, watermelon, and incense. The warm baking spices inherent in the grape come through here with hints of sandalwood and vetiver alongside its crisp, focused pink-fruit aromatics and flavors. Interesting...different...DELICIOUS! Perfect summer quaffer - drink it on its own or with most picnic foods, poultry, salmon....
