A fine rose for warm weather


The start of the long holiday weekend has finally afforded me a break from work.  Given the weather in Washington, DC, I highly recommend you purchase many bottles of the 2017 Der Pollerhof, Rose vom Zweigelt.  I know I will this weekend.  I like some fruit in my rosé, which this bottle offers, but there is additional complexity from pastilles and a chalky quality.  The lively acidity ensures this remains a refreshing drink.  It is imported by and for sale at MacArthur Beverages.

2017 Der Pollerhof, Rose vom Zweigelt – $15
Imported by MacArthur Liquors.  Alcohol 12%.  The lively acidity drives bright, ripe red berries the more moderate flavors of ripe pastilles.  The second half brings dry, chalky flavors through the finish where it becomes drier.  The aftertaste is quite long with noticeable acidity on the tongue.  *** Now – 2019.
