Tasting Notes

A sparkling rosé from Austria made from the Zweigelt grape variety. The bubbles are delicate and dry, yet show an abundance of red-berried fruit aromas. An excellent apéritif wine to pair with cured meats or fish.

Staff Pick Notes

The Erdenlied wines from Austria are some of our most popular, so when this new sparkling rosé arrived, it created quite a buzz. This over-delivers. It's not just solid, but delicious at a great price. Made with 100% Zweigelt, it's a beauty in the glass, offering up subtle chalky raspberries, a fine, persistent mousse, and crisp acidity. Erdenlied was named after Gustav Mahler’s symphony “Das Lied der Erde,” or “Song of the Earth.” It's a perfect metaphor for their wines. This is a great bottle to pop for a party or pack for a picnic while listening to a NY Philharmonic concert in Central Park.
