The idea of developing Riesling Rosé wine, like many killer ideas, arose by accident in late fall 2019.
"We sat in the garden of winemaker Axel Neiss in the Palatinate wine region of southern Germany. There was still a drop of Pinot Noir red wine in my glass after the tasting when our host poured dry Riesling there, chosen as lunch wine. I guess at that point I was focused on my cell phone and did not pay attention that the wine was being poured in my glass which still had a drop of pinot noir left. When I lifted my eyes on table, I saw a glass of rosé wine in my glass that I decided to taste. I asked what the rest of the party thought of the very tasty rosé wine. To my surprise, no one else had rosé wine and only then did we realize what had happened - this is how the story of Riesling Rosé began and hopefully the end will be history! ” says wine importer Tuomas Meriluoto MW from Winestate Ltd (Finland).
Due to the EU and German legistlation, the wine is not allowed to be sold as rosé wine, since rosé wine can only be made by extracting the colour from the skin, not by blending red and white wine. To sell it, the wine is sold as a wine drink with a blend of white wine, red wine and water.
Blend: 97% Riesling, 2,99% Pinot Noir and 0,01% water.
