Pinot rosé

A local rosé for these balmy(ish) mid-summer nights:

Winzergenossenschaft Britzingen, Spätburgunder Rosé Kabinett trocken 2008, Baden
Watery salmon pink with an orangey hue (see photo, which exaggerates the colours somewhat - especially the orange). Delicate water melon, bitter orange and floral aromas on the nose. This continues on the palate. If anything, the fruit is understated. Elegant, fresh and balanced with a welcome degree of focus for this style of wine. Unusual and interesting in its more melon-driven style. Nothing at all to quibble here, but plenty to quaff.
