Ehmoser, Josef

Uncomplicated and refreshing, Josef recommends his varietal Zweigelt rosé on hot summer days and humid summer nights. Grown on loess soils on sites in Hohenberg and Gerogenberg, fermented in stainless steel and aged on the lees.

"We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Austria and Germany continue to be the origins of some of the world’s finest rosés. [...] The Ehmoser, also from zweigelt and hailing from the nearby Wagram, is similarly spicy (poppy seed) and a bit quieter in its plum fruit, but with a similarly polished texture. In both wines, there’s never more fruit than the acidity can match, so they never come across as sweet."
