Time to return to the Kopše family to the slope above Kozjak and their super neat wine cellar and inn. The view here is spectacular, and I firmly suggest you take the time and visit them. We’ll be tasting their rendition of rosé wine. The Doppler Efekt rose, which is a blend of Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt.
Grapes are coming from the vineyards around the cellar at an altitude between 300 and 360 meters above sea level. Hand-harvest is executed exclusively by hand at optimal ripeness, and wines are vinified separately, following the same procedure.
After destemming and crushing, berries are pressed. The juice is then left to clarify, and the clear part is then racked into stainless vats where fermentation starts at temperatures between 10 to 18 ° Celsius for half a year. After assemblage, the wine is ready for bottling.
Doppler’s rosé displays a more profound, extractive salmon colour with fair density.
Aromas are intense and recall red fruit. We perceive cranberries, raspberries, rosehip, hibiscus and rose petals, wild berries and a slight touch of fern.
The taste is medium-dry, soft and reasonably warm. Its freshness is crisp with mineral saltiness. This intense rosé leaves a refreshing, elegant aftertaste with just enough structure to enjoy sipping it over sunset.
A wine that is ideal for drinking now and will please for this and the following season. A bottle will cost you between 8 and 10 Eur, and you can order it at the winemaker by calling +386 41 73 73 73 or sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
