Loimer's light-footed Gluegglich Rosé glows with brilliant strawberry pink in the glass. As it has been neither fined nor filtered, it reveals a subtle cloudiness reminiscent of pink grapefruit juice. The first nose of Gluegglich Rosé flatters with nuances of quince, plum spicy cranberries. The fruity parts of the bouquet are joined by notes of garrigue and flowers.
The Loimer Gluegglich Rosé presents itself wonderfully dry to the connoisseur. This rosé wine never appears coarse or meager, as one might expect from a wine in the upper price range. Light-footed and multifaceted, this crisp rosé wine presents itself on the palate. Due to its vital fruit acidity, the Gluegglich Rosé shows itself impressively fresh and lively. The final of this rosé wine from the wine-growing region of Lower Austria finally thrills with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of the soils dominated by gravel and limestone gravel.
Vinification of the Winery Loimer Gluegglich Rosé
The basis for the elegant Gluegglich Rosé from Lower Austria are grapes of the Pinot Noir, Saint Laurent and Zweigelt varieties. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Lower Austria, and the Gluegglich Rosé was produced as a country wine to take maximum liberties for this natural wine style. The vines dig their roots deep into soils of limestone gravel and gravel. The grapes for this rosé wine from Austria are harvested exclusively by hand, at the time of optimal ripeness. After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully ground, with a portion also processed in whole cluster pressing. This is followed by spontaneous fermentation in oak barrels at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for 4 months on the full lees and another 2 months on the fine lees. Before bottling, the Gluegglich is sulfurized with only 20 mg per liter.
