Eymann Cabernet Cubin rose


2007 Cabernet Cubin Rose trocken
Eymann, Gönnheim, Pfalz, Germany
6,50 €

100% Cabernet Cubin
12,5 % abv

A nice, fresh rose wine. The color is intense orange-red. Aromas of strawberries and sweet forrest strawberries. A crisp acidity makes this light bodied wine a nice companion for, among other, BBQ food.

We had it with grilled chicken and also with lamb and sausages and it was good each time.

Cabernet Cubin is a rather new German grape variety, used since around 2000 only. It was first introduced in Weinsberg in 1970, from a crossing of Limberger Blau (Blaufränkisch) and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The estate of Weingut Eymann has a long history in the region, with first mentions in 1350, then called Toreye. They belong to the Naturland organisation, treating soil, vines and wines with natural means.

Another value-for-money wine.
