DetailsA great guy this rosé with the black label. Here Christian Nett - at a young age he was considered the enfant terrible of the Palatinate winegrowing scene - wanted to show that a rosé is not what so many contemptuously call "nothing half and nothing whole". The often described half-knowledge of supposed connoisseurs ensures that the rosé is placed in a corner where it really doesn't belong. We want to dispel any prejudices here: Rosé is not a mixture of red and white wine. Rosé is made exclusively from red grapes. These really have to be very healthy and in ripe condition. After a short fermentation process, you separate the skins - they bring the color - from the juice and then let the wine mature to the end. Then there is another method that comes from French and is called saignée, which means to bleed or bloodletting. In Bordeaux, this type of wine, known as Clairet, was an important export hit for decades. This rose from Christian Nett was also made in this way. Before the must begins to ferment, a relatively light must is separated from the rest of the red wine must after a few hours. Ten or a maximum of 15% can be withdrawn from the fermentation vat in this way, but it is worthwhile if you want to increase the proportion of tanning or coloring substances for your own red wine at the same time.
In principle, this Saignée method should result in a slightly colored red wine that is stronger than a white wine but brings with it freshness and fruit. But now comes the moment when the winemaker can intervene and turn a normal rosé into a wine with character. If you look at the geographical location of the Palatinate, France's luxurious red wine region - Burgundy - is not far away and it is usually not wrong to look across the borders. Adding the strong taste of roasted aromas from the barrel aging to a rosé as a matter of course is something that not everyone can do well. But here the juice had enough berry fruit that it could prevail against the wood. Actually, after the second glass at the latest, you wonder why rosé might not always taste so good. Opulent, powerful, dry, hot summer day, good food. All of this buzzes through your head and makes you want the second bottle.
