Zucshmann Schöfmann is a 40 acre certified organic estate run by husband and wife team, Else Zuschmann and Peter Schöfmann. The estate is located in the undisturbed, quite natural environment of Martinsdorf near Vienna.
Else's family background is agriculture and she is trained in wine production. Peter trained as a chef and has always loved wine. Their aim is to produce elegant, well-structured wines with harmony, balance, and the ability to age. There is no ambition to grow, because according to Peter, then he would lose control over his 'babies', the vines. He knows each and every vine by name.
This organic rosé is made from hand-harvested grapes—50% of harvested early and 50% harvested at full ripeness. Darker colored than Provence rosé, this stunningly clean wine has bright red fruit flavors that will complement grilled fish, pork sausage, and other hearty summer fare. (from the vintner)
