No matter how cold it gets I still freaking LOVE Rose. So I am really looking forward to trying the Umathum Rosa Rose. It is made at a biodynamic winery in Austria where they make wines that are “food for the soul,” according to winemaker Weingut Josef Umathum. It is only $22.00/bottle and can be shipped to any state in the US! I can’t wait to sit on my couch all bundled up watching Scandal and sipping this in my glass.
Tasting Notes via Domaine LA: “This wine blows my mind- starting with the color all the way through to the long-lasting finish. It’s 40% zweigelt, 30% saint laurent and 30% blaufrankish- an intriguing blend considering zweigelt is a cross of saint laurent & blaufrankish. The wine pours almost neon pink- it doesn’t look real! Aromatics of red delicious apples, pink peppercorn, and strawberries burst out of the glass. The palate shows bing cherries, underbrush, watermelon rind, and even a bit of smoke. This is a more plush wine with medium body, subtle tannins, and wonderful complexity that continues to change with every swirl.”
AHHHH can’t wait to have my first sip!
