Shiny pale orange in color. The aroma is full of rich berry notes, even a bit jam-like. The mouth-feel is filled with fruit like ripe melon and peaches and has great structure and concentration. The lovely creaminess from the barrel fermentation and the extended lees contact is perfectly balanced by nice soft tannins and fantastic minerality. The finish is long and dry and shows fine hints of lime and crushed stones. This is a sophisticated rosé that is elegant with a lot going on, and the wine is screaming to be paired with food.
61% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Franc, 11% Chardonnay, 3% Sauvignon Blanc
Food Pairing Notes
Serve slightly chilled. The combination of bleeding our Ripe Malbec and adding crisp fresh CF, Chard and SB and the additional barrel fermentation with extended lees contact makes this wine especially versatile and food-friendly. Pair with fresh fish, sushi, poached or grilled lobster or shrimp, marinated meats and soft cheeses. Hold it till Thanksgiving and you’ll have a special—and delicious—surprise for your turkey!
