Josef Ehmoser Zweigelt Rose 2020

This rosé produced from Zweigelt grapes is quite the charmer. Gentle maceration, pressing and cold fermentation all enhance this pink delight, leaving it as beautiful in the glass as on the palate. Packed with refreshing fruits, this linear rosé presents a delicious yet nuanced accompaniment to any meal. With traces of red berries and sweet cherries, it begs to be enjoyed well beyond just the summer months. 100 % Zweigelt hand-harvested from the vineyards in and around Grossweikersdorf. Fermented and lees aged in stainless steel.

Niederösterreich (Lower Austria) encompasses the regions encircling Vienna with Wagram, located to the north-west of the city, being one of its 8 sub-regions. It follows the Danube for a 30 km stretch, with most of the vineyards sited on the north bank. Grüner Veltliner accounts for around 50% of total plantings.
Austrian wine labelling and the ongoing evolution of their wine laws can be rather complex, but the focus now is for each region is to offer primarily traditional Austrian grape varieties. The DAC system (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) highlights flagship regions and varieties and has gradually brought labelling and regulation under a unified national approach since 2002. The designation of DACs is still ongoing with some such as the Wachau’s DAC established quite recently. Wagram is amongst the last awaiting their DAC to be finalised.
Ehmoser provides us with a great introduction to both Austria and its internationally recognised, signature grape variety. They offer consistently well-made examples including a particularly good value entry level Grüner Veltliner.
Josef and Martina are a gentle, unassuming couple based in the hamlet of Tiefenthal in Grossweikersdorf. They are quietly confident and articulate about their dedication to creating carefully produced wines, true to their region. Their professional, efficient communication skills epitomise the organised and detailed approach, characteristic to many Austrian producers running their family businesses.
Josef took over the family vineyards and winery in 1996 after completing his wine studies in Krems. His maternal grandfather had originally set up the family business in the 1930s, buying vineyards which included vines on Hohenberg. He sold his wines in barrel to the local eateries to be served by the glass. Josef’s parents added more vineyards in the 1980s, with with couple continuing the tradition. Their 17ha are all within the commune of Grossweikersdorf and are spread across Steinberg, Hausberg, Kobel, Hohenberg and Georgenberg. Their largest holdings are in Hohenberg at nearly 8ha which account for around two thirds of the total of this single vineyard. Recently both Hohenberg and Georgenberg have been accredited as Erste Lage. Everything here is harvested by hand.
