Pratsch Zweigelt Rose 21
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
Weingut Pratch is a tiny gem of an estate with thirteen single vineyard sites on twenty hectares in the Niederösterreich region. Wilhelm, Anneliese, and their son Stephan have been practicing organic farming and winemaking techniques since the early 90s and were among the first in the area to convert entirely to organic production.
Stephan Pratsch was drawn to wine at an early age. By his 15th birthday, the winemaking prodigy became the eighth-generation vigneron at his family's estate. With Stephan running the winery, his parents focused on completing the property's conversion to organic viticulture.
I was introduced to Zweigelt Rosé fifteen years ago during my first buying trip to Austria, and it remains at the top of my list of favorite dry Rosé. I've always leaned towards buying Zweigelt Rosé in larger quantities, both personally and for the shop, since they always drink so well into the following year. I love how these Rosés soften around the edges into their second year, yielding a smoother sip while still maintaining plenty of lift. The Pratsch Zweigelt Rosé is an excellent example of this phenenom.
In your glass, peach, red berry, and pomegranate aromas lead to a juicy palate of cranberry and orchard fruits. The ripe and round palate has just the right amount of pleasing acidity to keep the finish fresh and clean. Notes of peach and hints of citrus linger nicely on the finish. This is a great one for the porch and patio; however, it's also super food-friendly.
