Another fantastic wine from southern Germany’s natural wine darling, Andi Knauss. This pretty coppery rosé is heaven in winter, when you’re craving a hit of sweet strawberry, tart cherry and rose garden to remind you of spring and sun. The grapes come from all around Andi’s property and reflect the qualities of his varying limestone soils. We love it on its own, but it isn’t a mindless porch pounder – there are layers of complexity here, and a savory, salty finish that perks up whatever is on your plate, making it an excellent food wine as well.
