Brut Rose (Traditional Method Sparkling Wine)
About The Wine
This is a wonderful new addition by the Zantho team to the already exciting roster of whites and reds from Austria.
The Brut Rose is made in the ‘traditional method’. In other words, it’s exactly like champagne in the way it’s produced, bottled and preserved.
Zantho’s Brut Rose is a light pink colour, owing to the contribution of the two grapes: St Laurent and Pinot Noir.
On the nose, there are hints of cherry and red berries with just a hint of spice. On the palate, it has a refreshing sparkle and fizz, combined with light forest berries and cherries.
This is a perfect celebration wine that can be enjoyed on any occasion!
Sparkling wines are almost always consumed as an appertif or starter for your events, but because champagnes are high in acidity and low in sugar, they make great partners with any array of food that is rich, fatty or fried.
Examples include butternut squash ravioli in a cream sauce, BBQ foods like ribs or chicken, rich cheeses, spring rolls and other Asian foods, fried mushrooms and more!

Falstaff, Austria: 90 Points
Check out this review by Falstaff in Austria.
Zantho’s Brut represents a blend of Pinot Noir and St. Laurent and is produced in the traditional method for sparkling wine. It is ideal for fine occasions or as an aperitif. Fine dining food pairings include light salads, melon, fish and seafood.
Falstaff Chefradakteur Peter Moser rated the Zantho Brut Rosé with 90 points and describes it as follows:
Bright pink with soft pink hues, good mousse. On the nose, hints of cherries and red Waldbeerkonfit (wild berry reduction or coulis), a touch of stone fruit, delicate honey. Bodied on the palate, juicy fruit, finesse acidity, fresh lemony nuances, pleasant touch of sweetness on the finish, very versatile. “
