Wine Estate Monastery Cellar Muri-Gries
In 1845 the Benedictines moved Muri in Switzerland to Gries in South Tyrol, where the order took over the Augustinian monastery. In so doing, they inherited a long tradition of wine-growing, which they nurtured in the spirit of a symbiosis of monastery, winery and estate that is still very much in evidence today. The result, in the 21st century, is a range of top-quality wines MURI-GRIES like the Abtei Muri line, which has been produced selected grapes the very best sites since 1989. The MURI-GRIES wine estate comprises 35 hectares of vineyards in excellent locations in and around Bolzano and Appiano. The monastery vineyards offer an outstanding terroir, combining excellent soils with a highly favourable climate.
Merlot rosé is a rose-coloured to light ruby wine, delicately fruity on the nose. On palate it is delicious and pleasantly fresh in flavour.
Pink colour with ruby hints. Quite pronounced, fruity aroma (red berries) with floral impressions (violets). Medium-bodied smooth fruit on the palate, fresh. Long lasting aftertaste with an elegant bitter twist.
Unlike numerous other insipid rose coloured wines, this is a rosé with strong personality, freshness, fragrant, similar to a fine white wine but with the rich fruit and roundness of a young red intended for early drinking.
Fruity, bloomy and wholehearted wine, strongly recalling elder, black currant and green grass.
