Josef Umathum Rosa 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Vintage variation on the fascinating theme of Rose saignee, a rosé that’s so cool it wears dark glass. Something of a red wine in a white wine’s body perhaps, the signature blend of Blaufränkisch, Sankt Laurent and Zweigelt. Not nearly as wild in the aromatix as was the preceding 2011, the 2013 shows more polish and texture like 2012; cinammon and cloves on a sour-cherry and strawberry background. Glass stopper, very elegant." -Importer

The name Umathum is Frankish in origin. The Umathums first settled in the region of Lake Neusiedl during the reign of Maria-Theresia. Wine-growing has always played an important role in the Umathum family history. Until the early 1970's the family delivered its harvested grapes to a cooperative, but before beginning to bottle their own wines. A method presently used by many very good vintners all over the world. Until the 1980's, the firm was producing a variety of agriculture goods. Today, wine-growing is the company's central focus, though it does still remain active in other fields. Director Josef Umathum, born 1960, has been in charge of the firm's wine-growing division since 1985. A series of very good wines in notoriously difficult vintage years, and a growing number of loyal fans, have secured Umathum a solid reputation and trust. The Umathum Wine Estate has consistently ranked as one of the best wine-growers in Austria since the early 1990's. Read less
