This wine is as pretty as the label. Everything about this is lip-smackingly tasty. Fresh cherry bursts from the Zweigelt grapes (native to this part of the world) and drinks a bit like a Pinot Noir on steroids. No shortage of elegance in this wine where pretty much every berry is represented – raspberry, strawberry, boysenberry, blackberry, and a hint of blueberry. There is a heightened alertness about this wine. It’s impossible to ignore how elegant this Rosé truly is.
Winemaker Christina Netzl serves this with her homemade smoked trout. But, if for some reason you can’t get that, cold cuts, smoked salmon or gravlax, watermelon salad, and light veggie dishes work great too. This is a ‘warm summer nights’ kind of wine that will elegantly pair with pretty much anything on your menu.
Christina Netzl began her path towards natural winemaking as a young girl of 5 years old, working on her family’s farm and vineyard with her parents and grandparents. Christina studied oenology and wine management in London, getting to know wine styles from all over the world. In 2007, she returned to the winery to work with her parents, and after having two children, became passionate about organic viticulture. They began the process of converting everything to organic in 2013 - starting with soil treatments and elimination of herbicides, followed by eliminating pesticides and practicing 100% organic vineyard management and then finally organic production in the winery. In 2018 they began the official process of being certified organic. Over the last 10 years working at the winery, Christina has fallen in love with ancient winemaking practices and launched her own natural wine label, Christina.
