A rarity from one of our favorite producers of one of our favorite wine regions. Made of Lagrein, a native red variety of South Tyrol, and Kretzer is the local name for roses. The grapes are grown in a set of vineyards overlooking a highway in the mountainous region with certified organic farming.
From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):
"Elda & Heinrich Mayr are the latest generation of their family to work this land, where the records date back to at least 1788. The Nüsserhof gets its name from the walnut trees that once lined the house on the river side....
There is also a limited amount of Lagrein Kretzer (Rosé) available each year. Like the white it is made from destemmed grapes that are immediately pressed and fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperature. It is a beautiful cherry pink color and also will age quite well over a few years."
