Since the grapes of the Elbling variety are partly pink in colour, this wine can also be turned into wine like a rosé. The grapes simply have to be sorted by selecting the darkest grapes for maceration (fermentation leaving on the skin of the grapes). The Elbling Rosé is a light wine and pleasant to drink since it does not contain the same amount of acidity as its white brother.
This wine is offered in a transparent Bordeaux bottle of 75 cl.
AOP MOSELLE LUXEMBOURGEOISE:
Since 1935, the Luxembourg government has been controlling the quality of the wines produced in our Moselle Valley. First the wine producer has to make a formal request for each barrel he wishes to introduce. Then, after a lab analysis, the wine is tasted by a commission of 12 blindfolded members who evaluate the wine on a scale of 20 points.
· 12,0 – 13,9 points: AOP Marque Nationale
· 14,0 – 15,9 points: AOP MN – Vin Classé
· 16,0 – 17,9 points: AOP MN – Premier Cru
· 18,0 – 20,0 points: AOP MN – Grand Premier Cru
The official back label on the wine bottles is a guarantee of the governmental quality control.
Elbling Rosé can obtain the classification “Marque Nationale” only.
