Rózsa Petsovits was born in 1921 in Horitschon/Hungary. In the same year Horitschon came to Austria. Just as the history of Burgenland is a history of German-speaking Hungarians, so this wine tries to think without borders. Syrah from gneiss from Hungary mingles with Sankt Laurent and Pinot Noir from limestone in Austria.
A rosé to remember, dedicated to my very active grandmother. The perfect wine for summertime. Also works with cooler temperatures. Spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels and ageing with yeast for 8 months.
tasting notes by Emily Campeau
We had a bottle of this wine over dinner last night. I said, very simply put: « I want to drink a bottle of this wine eveyday. » I do have a reputation of drinking every winemaker I know under the table but that is not the reason why. When it comes to rosé, things can go in so many different ways, depending on stylistic decisions. This wine falls in the category of « dangerously drinkable ». It has generous fruit tightened by an underlying gentle amount of reduction. It’s a cloudy wild beast that’ll make you blush. It tastes like a good dinner on a given night in the middle of harvest. It fuels long conversations that go way too far into the night. I’d suggest always having two bottles on hands, because the first one tends to have a hole.
