A classic German Weissherbst (Single variety rosé) made from Pinot Noir and done in a dry style. This wine is rich on the palate, bright and floral, with a touch of earthy strawberry. Steely and linear, a great hot weather wine or have it year-round with light cuisine or appetizers. To produce this lovely rosé the freshly harvested grapes are crushed and left for 3 – 6 hrs on the must to allow for color extraction. The crush is then pressed and fermented in stainless steel.
Pairings: Great with berry or grapefruit-influenced salads, starters, light summer dishes, sushi and creamy goat cheeses!
The Gutzler Estate is located in the wine-producing community of Gundheim in the hilly southern part of Rheinhessen. Run today by Gerhard Gutzler and his son Michael, the winery has been in family ownership for generations, originally producing a variety of agricultural products including wine.
When senior vintner Gerhard Gutzler picked up the business from his father in 1985, he dedicated his passion solely to the vineyards and the wine, also adding a small champagne manufacturing facility, where sparkling wine is fermented according to the traditional method developed in the Champagne region of France.

Rheinhessen is known as Germany’s largest wine producing region. Nestled between rolling hills, bordered to the west by the Nahe River and to the northeast by the Rhine, it is a very fertile land. Unlike along the Rhine or the Mosel, many other crops are harvested here in addition to the many vineyards that cover approximately 20% of the area. The better vineyard sites are in a concentrated area along the steep west bank of the Rhine, known as the Rheinterrasse (Rhine terrace), and towards the south near the town of Worms and around the village of Westhofen.
