And here's some new and new vintage wine:
Stein Rosé Trocken 2019
We're longtime fans of Ulli Stein, but this is the first time we've gotten his rosé. Old-vine, organically farmed rosé of Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon from the steep, blue-slate vineyards of Mosel, Germany. It's only 11% abv, but the fruit is deep, concentrated, and precise: strawberry, pomegranate, and despite crackly acidity, there's a dash of creamy ripeness (maybe it's cherry?) that creeps in around the edges. And it's Mosel, and slate, so of course all that fruit is wrapped around a rocky core.
