Domaine Engel Vins Dalsace Pinot Noir Tradition Rosé 2008
The Tortoise Hill range derives its name from one of Glen Carlou’s most distinctive landmarks: a rocky hill in the shape of a giant tortoise. Created to add quality and enjoyment to contemporary living, the two vibrantly fruity wines are backed by the Glen Carlou promise of consistent quality. This wine is a rich strawberry pink with a hint of cranberry red. On the nose there's delicate rose petal aromas, ripe raspberry and cherry - very clean and fresh. On the palate soft acidity balances the clean dark fruit and ripe watermelon flavours. The finish is soft and dry with lingering dark berry fruits. A lovely light aperitif wine, enjoyed by itself or with a summer salad.

This wine showed rich red fruits, yeasty baking bread and pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry but not much else on the palate and a little dry on the finish. In comparison to the previous vintage, this wine falls short on both body and depth. Very drinkable and good for the price but not a repeat purchase for me.

External Reviews for Domaine Engel Vins Dalsace Pinot Noir Tradition Rosé
This light red mingles tart cherry and vanilla flavors with firm, slightly drying tannins. Fresh and bitter, it needs food to soften it. Drink now.
This lively red shows black cherry and coffee flavors - fresh, clean and balanced. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Red-ruby. Roasted berries, plum, chocolate and spicecake on the nose. Fat, sweet and smooth, with somewhat cabernet-like flavors of roasted red berries and spicecake. A fruit-driven, easygoing, essentially soft wine with a bit more class than the basic Protocolo red; the vineyards here are at higher altitude and the oak barrels are a bit younger.
Fresh, dry, and approachable, this rosé is made by a talented mother-daughter team. You'll love their style; travel to the south of France and you'll find the locals drinking rosés just like this one.
Wow! This wine comes across as a classy, Médoc-like Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes no sense given the fact that it is made from 100% Tempranillo, and tank-aged and fermented, with no exposure to oak! The cedary, herb-tinged, peppery, chocolatey, black cherry nose is alluring. In the mouth, the wine is surprisingly deep and rich, with medium to full body, a velvety texture, and a nicely delineated style. It is a wine to buy by the case.

Subdued and earthy, with cool, compact red-fruit aromas. The palate offers brandied cherry, plum and apple skin flavors. The finish is long, with coffee and chocolate along with some fatty oak. Has a lot going for it, but could use more focus.
