    Winemaker Notes

    Bright pink with ruby highlights. Red fruit aromas such as red currant & raspberry. Vibrant citrus nots on the palate, fruit-driven with delicate spices and dark berry aromas characteristic of these varieties. Pleasantly tingling.

    The Fritz Müller story began in 2009 with the idea to breathe new life into a traditional German grape variety which had been pushed out of the public eye: Müller-Thurgau.

    Which came when Herr Müller from Thurgau was growing this grape in the Rheingau region back in 1882, nobody had the slightest idea of just how insidiously this variety would later stab German winemaking in the back. Adapted to the local climate, the Müller-Thurgau matures quickly and produces refreshing wines every year, even when other more sun-loving varieties did not receive enough sun. With its reliably good flavor, the Müller-Thurgau quickly spread throughout the country – even topping the Riesling variety in the early 1970s. In the 1980s, however, things started going downhill for the Müller. Many winemakers took advantage of the fact that the grape can produce high-yield harvests and peddled the variety off as inferior bulk wine. The world was flooded with cheap German Müller-Thurgau wines and blends thereof. "Characterless, dreadful, superfluous!" cried the wine experts. The reputation of German wine was thus completely ruined and Müller-Thurgau ended up at the top of the list of scorned varieties.

    In Northern Italy, things went differently: There, instead of inferior Müller, there was inferior Prosecco. Thanks to the high-quality wines that winemakers in South Tyrol and Trentino have been producing from Müller-Thurgau grapes since the 1980s, the German variety was able to eke out a comfortable exile in bella Italia. The sparkling variations of the refreshing Müller wines are especially well received. And since the triumphant success of the "Spritz" at the very latest, the Italians even consider "Muller frizzante" to be pretty cool indeed.

    Even though frowned upon and banned from most wine labels - there is still enough Müller-Thurgau in Germany, especially in Rhinehessen. And Rhinehessen is also where our favorite winemaker, Jürgen Hofmann, happens to live. He and his wine friends, who grow the grapes for Fritz, really understand winemaking. Which is why they can identify with the good-old days of Müller Thurgau today, and are thus able – once again – to create a fresh, fruity, exhilarating wine that makes people happy. The important thing in the making thereof, is that only good grapes end up in a bottle of Fritz. Because only when ripe and healthy grapes are used, can Fritz naturally taste so fruity and vibrant as it does. And the bubbles that it receives on top of all that, make it even fresher. Fritz is not intended to be a semi-sparkling wine for the masses, but it should please everyone. Everyone, that is, who wants not only to philosophically sniff the glass in their hand, but would sometimes rather just drink from it – only without the headache, and without an empty wallet the morning after.

    Extending south from the Rheingau region to become a valley of gently rolling hills, Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine region. The best Rieslings of Rheinhessen, often characterized by smoky, peach and citrus aromas, come from vines grown in the red soils of the Rheinterrasse.

    What are the different types of sparkling rosé wine?

    Rosé sparkling wines like Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and others make a fun and festive alternative to regular bubbles—but don’t snub these as not as important as their clear counterparts. Rosé Champagnes (i.e., those coming from the Champagne region of France) are made in the same basic way as regular Champagne, from the same grapes and the same region. Most other regions where sparkling wine is produced, and where red grape varieties also grow, also make a rosé version.

    How is sparkling rosé wine made?

    There are two main methods to make rosé sparkling wine. Typically, either white wine is blended with red wine to make a rosé base wine, or only red grapes are used but spend a short period of time on their skins (maceration) to make rosé colored juice before pressing and fermentation. In either case the base wine goes through a second fermentation (the one that makes the bubbles) through any of the various sparkling wine making methods.

    What gives rosé Champagne and sparkling wine their color and bubbles?

    The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, which traps carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. During this stage, the yeast cells can absorb some of the wine’s color but for the most part, the pink hue remains.

    How do you serve rosé sparkling wine?

    Treat rosé sparkling wine as you would treat any Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and other sparkling wine of comparable quality. For storing in any long-term sense, these should be kept at cellar temperature, about 55F. For serving, cool to about 40F to 50F. As for drinking, the best glasses have a stem and a flute or tulip shape to allow the bead (bubbles) and beautiful rosé hue to show.

    How long do rosé Champagne and sparkling wine last?

    Most rosé versions of Prosecco, Champagne, Cava or others around the “$20 and under” price point are intended for early consumption. Those made using the traditional method with extended cellar time before release (e.g., Champagne or Crémant) can typically improve with age. If you are unsure, definitely consult a wine professional for guidance.
