Kellerei St. Pauls - Meris Merlot Rosé 2019
Kellerei St. Pauls - Meris Merlot Rosé 2019 (87 TSW)
Fall is setting in - but I resist :)
This Merlot Rosé from one of my favorite regions (Alto Adige) is a very good companion for these resisting days.
Short introduction to the winery:
The St. Pauls Winery is located in St. Pauls, the northern part of the municipality of Appiano in the Alto Adige region of South Tyrol in the Italian region of Trentino-South Tyrol. It was founded in 1907 by 36 wine growers. In 2005, the Kössler wine and sparkling wine cellar was taken over, including wine storage, suppliers and customers.
The historic cellar extends over four floors at a height of 22 metres. The 215 members cultivate 180 hectares of vineyards in various locations at 300 to 700 meters above sea level around St. Pauls. The most important ones are Eppan Berg, Gfill, Huberfeld, Justina, Missian and Plötzner.
About the wine:
Slow fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel, maturation on fine yeast.
My tasting notes:
In the @zieher_selection glass a bright pink color.
On the medium nose aromas of strawberries, raspberries and white peach with hints of flowers, cinnamon and spices.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium acidity and fruity freshness. Nicely balanced with flavours that are a recall of the nose. Round mouthfeel with fruity finish.
Will be great for sipping at the pool, with aperitifs, starters and smoked fish dishes.
