2020 Gönc 'Cuvée Anna' Rosé Štajerska
Winemaker Notes: Peter Gönc has been making wines from his family’s estate in the oldest town in Slovenia, Ptuj. He named this bottle after his grandmother, Ann —which makes sense since half of this bottle is made up of the grape Žametna Črnina, an indigenous vine that dates back some 400 years. With cuts of Pinot Noir, Grigio and Blaufränkisch, you’ll undoubtedly taste the familiar style of rosé, but with a decidedly Slovakian mineraly snappiness.
Anna Rosé is made of 50% Zametna Crnina, 20% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Grigio and 10% Blaufränkisch from vines between 20-55 years old, all low yielding and pruned to a single guyot at an elevation of 820-1300 feet. Aged 3 months on fine lees.
Nose: Wild berries, strawberries, melon, and peaches conspiring to take over the orchard
Palate: The nice sting of a slap bracelet wrapped around your tongue with bright fruit and a refreshing mineral zap
