Notes from the Importer: Grapes for this wine are always the first to be harvested, usually at the end of September, which brings this soulful rosé its appealing freshness, low ABV (about 10%) and high drinkability.

Fun facts:

  • Roland is a member of Schmecke das Leben (“Taste Life”), a circle of like-minded Styrian growers whose wines we really love – his colleagues Franz Strohmeier, Sepp Muster, Andreas Tscheppe are also represented by us in the States.
  • All Tauss’ vineyards lay on one hill called Hohenegg, a beautifully green sun-laden slope with a chapel dedicated to St. Urban – the patron saint of winemakers – at the top.
  • Roland has a ritual of walking up there every morning, and you can definitely see the daily hike in his impressive calf muscles
  • The “Opok” wines are made with grapes from the lower part of the hill, while the “H” line comes from the steeper upper parts that yield wines with more structure
  • Besides the immaculate winery, the Tauss’ property also features a cozy, fully eco-friendly hotel that takes advantage of its beautiful verdant surroundings, with wellness and yoga classes, run by Roland’s wife Alice – a tip for your next holiday retreat, perhaps?

Personality: such a pretty, energetic, irresistible rosé! Deep color, fruity nose with a touch of funk and forest strawberries, great mouthfeel tingling with pleasantly tart rose-hip and red fruit jelly notes. If you’re into energizing natural rosé, this one is definitely your Valentine.
