It’s been two years since we produced our Grenache Rosé…and boy oh boy have we missed it! Many of our guests might remember this wine in earlier vintages as our “Rosé the Riveter”. After patent issues, threatened lawsuits, and lots of hair pulling…we let go of that name (but the Riveter women who supported the WWII war effort are still near and dear to our hearts). But the wine itself isn’t dead…and in fact, it’s VERY MUCH ALIVE in this beautiful 2021 wine.
DANG THE NOSE!!! Dried strawberry for days, alongside lavender, vanilla, black tea, and rosehips. It’s a SERIOUS burst of flavor on the palate as the vanilla and ripe strawberry with crème fresh pours into your palate. It’s so weird! This wine TASTES sweet – but we swear, it tests completely dry! Suffice it to say…that if you’re a strawberry fan – or appreciate a “sweeter” Rosé…this wine will make your heart sing!
Rosés typically demand lighter foods: serve our 2021 Grenache Rosé with macerated strawberries in aged balsamic; or an Arugula salad with Prosciutto and some of those macerated strawberries on top. Consider a bottle alongside grilled swordfish or halibut. And dang…we just have to recommend a strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped crème and a glass of this stunning wine. ENJOY!
