Lemberger Weissherbst - An elegant tradition in Württemberg

Background:
Lemberger Weissherbst is a rosé wine. It is produced with the skin contact method. Black-skinned grapes of the Lemberger are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a short period. The must is then pressed, and the skins are discarded rather than left in contact throughout fermentation as with the making of the red Lemberger. The skins contain much of tannin and other taste influencing ingredients. The wine is closer to a white than a red wine. The longer the skins are in contact with the juice, the more intense the color of the final Lemberger gets.

Color and Flavor:
Lemberger Weissherbst has a wonderful intensely rosé color. This Weissherbst is a very elegant wine with a dry accent.

Food and Wine Pairings:

  • shellfish and fish
  • soups
  • salads
  • pasta with salmon
  • fowl
  • veal and rabbit
  • pork
  • sausages, ham and pâtés
  • mild, medium and full flavored cheese

Our special suggestion is to pair Lemberger Weissherbst with another speciality of Germany, the white asparagus.
