Pale orange salmon color. Aromas of fresh raspberry, ripe watermelon, dried herbs, and orange marmalade with a supple, lively, dryish medium-full body and a medium-long ripe nectarine and melon rinds finish. A juicy rose with a dry finish that will be a great pour when dining alfresco; great varietal character.

Rosé refers to a wine made when red grapes are given slight skin contact to produce a blush, light copper, salmon or pink color. Rosés range from bone-dry to medium- sweet and are made in most major wine producing countries. Among the most famous examples are Tavel from France’s Rhone Valley, numerous offerings from Provence in southern France as well as several excellent versions from Puglia in southern Italy.

Often thought of as a summer wine – in this case, a substitute for red wine when the weather is hot – they can be enjoyed year round. The drier versions, of course, are meat for food pairings; recommended matches include chicken salad, vegetables and seafood such as tuna or salmon (especially with a rich rosé made from Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir).
