Certified Organic. Zweigelt macerated for around 14 hours on skins before direct pressing, then fermented crushed Grüner Veltliner grapes for 14 days in stainless steel–in other words, this is a rosé made like an ‘orange wine’ but with red fruit on white grape skins! During fermentation, the Grüner skins add spiciness and complexity to the black and purple fruit aromas of Zweigelt. To make things as hands-on as possible, all of the skins are hand-destemmed.  Aged for six months in 2/3 stainless steel and the rest in neutral French barriques. Bottled by gravity with no fining nor filtration. 8 mg/l SO2 added at bottling. The Rosa Marie is the second of three newer, experimental natural wines, named after Martin and Anna’s three daughters, as a way for them to continue pushing the limits of their winemaking.
