The 2019 868 Estate Vineyards Rosé is a mélange of four different red grapes available here at 868 Estate Produced in the Bordeaux tradition of saignée (bleeding of juice from a red wine), the pink juice is fermented cold to encourage crispness and fruit forward characteristics. Excellent as a “stand-alone” aperitif, this robust rosé will pair salmon steaks, tacos, fajitas and barbeque. The 868 Estate rosé is ready to consume anytime. Serve chilled.
868 Estate Vineyards’ Rosé is an intense, medium-bodied wine showing surprising structure and complexity. With a deep salmon color, the bouquet exudes strawberry, and pear with notes of apple, boxwood and pineapples. The flavors show off the wine’s red pedigree with elements of strawberry jam and cherry along with the hints of cedar and orange blossom. The refreshing finish lingers with accents of black pepper grapefruit and orange zest.
