Wein Galerie Rotling 2008

The Rotling variety is a mixture of white and red grapes or their mash prior to fermentation. Although the colour is similar to rosé, it is actually quite different from it.

The wine is half dry and is coming from the Franken region in Germany. The bottle has an unusual round shape which dates back to the 16th century. It is called the Bocksbeutel and may be used only for the Franken wines.

And finally, maybe I should say something for the wine itself! To be honest I didn't like it much. It is not white, but not red either. The taste is too sweet and the finishing was actually absent. Maybe I should give it a try with a more expensive representative of the Rotling.
