It wouldn't be too far a stretch of the imagination to substitute the "Rosa" on this Lichtenstein-esque label with an all-caps "POW!" A spicy blend of Austrian usual suspects zweigelt and blaufrankisch, with pinot noir and merlot blended in (all biodynamically grown) to give this punchy rosé a softer touch. We love the departure this young winemaker makes in style, we only wish she'd kept the regional liter format so we could enjoy it even more!

We get red fruits and spice on the nose, with more of the same on the palate all carried by a juicy acidity and overall brightness. Finishes crisp and round, with lovely minerality.

Food Ideas: grilled octopus and spicy chorizo, hurricane popcorn, sushi, roasted beets w/sherry vinaigrette, pinxtos
