An extended approach to rosé - a rosé of 100% Blaufränkisch, destemmed and spontaneously fermented in 500L Barrels. After which the wine is aged on the lees without sulphur for 12 months. Bottled unfiltered with minimal sulphur the wine serves as an expression of both freshness captured in minimal skin contact and the maturity and complexity of extended lees aging.
