This rosé is made with 100% Sangiovese grapes grown in Washington’s Walla Walla Valley. The fruit came from both Cut Bank and Seven Hills Vineyards and was aged solely in stainless steel tanks, rather than oak barrels. A beautiful salmon pink, this wine has notes of unripe strawberries, watermelon, mandarin oranges, including the peel. It is mostly tart with a nice, dry finish, making it an excellent rosé to pair with many types of foods.
Food pairing suggestions:
Pair it with a zucchini and gruyere cheese quiche, goat cheese and pear salad or fresh bruschetta on a grilled baguette.
