Blend: Blaufränkisch, Pinot Noir, St. Laurent
From: Burgenland, Austria
Tasting Notes: Fresh, poppy, and DELIGHTFUL. Look for aromas and flavors of fresh red berries, lychee, and melon on this crushable rosé. The ultimate uplift for a cool/wet Seattle summer day, or a thirst-quenching delight on those rare sunny ones.
Pairing: A summer delight such as this will perfectly accompany Ricotta Dumplings with Buttered Peas and Asparagus by Alison Roman, easily found in NYT Cooking.
Her take on the dumplings. These dumplings are a way to get the satisfaction of making your own pasta without having to make your own pasta. This recipe doesn’t require you to drain the ricotta, but if you notice that yours is especially wet, you may want to add a tablespoon or two more of flour to make sure the dough stays together. It should be like a very wet biscuit dough (and not pourable or soupy). As for the vegetables, this dish is a truly excellent canvas for anything seasonal (asparagus and peas in the spring, cherry tomatoes in the summer, mushrooms in the fall, squash in the winter), so adjust as you like.
About: Höpler wines have a clear signature. They tend to be delicate, lithe, elegant, and high in minerality. They are excellent to drink on their own but versatile when it comes to food and wine pairing. The Pannonica rose is a perennial favorite for affordable roses. It is hand-harvested and vinified in steel tank. The vineyard soils are clay, limestone, and gravel based, giving the resulting wine a wonderful sense of minerality and elegance.
