Huber ‘Hugo’ Rosé Sparkling NV

hugosparkling

Estate: 10th generation winegrower Markus Huber took over his family estate at the age of 23 and has become renowned for his focused, mineral driven wines. The 99 acre estate is located in the tiny Traisental region of northeastern Austria, an area famous for its Grüner Veltliner. The vineyards have the characteristic limestone soil of the area and are located on small terraces that are certified sustainable, with a large portion of organic methods also utilized. The ‘Hugo’ line of wines are “excellent values for everyday drinking”.

Winemaking: Fermented in stainless steel, then aged sur lie for 4 months [the finished wine sits on residual fruit and yeast particles].

Tasting Notes: Pale coral/copper in colour with aromas of strawberry, rain washed minerals and fresh bread. Fantastically consistent, fizzy bubbles buoy tart raspberry and strawberry flavors. Brioche, minerals and floral hints linger cheerfully on the dry finish. Great on its own or with light dishes, a fun deviation from Prosecco or Cava.
