Abacela, located in Oregon’s Umpqua Valley, is celebrating 25 years of winemaking! Owners Earl and Hilda Jones traveled all over the world, searching for a prime location in which to grow Tempranillo, finally landing in Roseburg. And while the winery is known for their award-winning Tempranillos, they have a number of other varietals planted. This rosé is made using Grenache fruit from their estate vineyard.
Color: Watermelon pink
Aromas: This wine has so many red fruit aromas! Rainer and bing cherries, strawberries, ruby red grapefruit dance the tango with cotton candy in this rosé.
Flavors: Those red fruit aromas are all prominent with my first sip of the wine. Tart acidity quickly transforms into luscious strawberries and cotton candy before doubling back into zests of mandarin orange and grapefruit.
Food pairing suggestions: The Abacela Grenache rosé is so zippy and fun, I suggest pairing it with fish tacos, watermelon and feta salad, grilled chicken or an heirloom tomato caprese salad.
Be sure to celebrate their 25th anniversary with them by ordering some wine! Abacela has generously offered you, the Winerabble audience, a special promo code through May 31, 2020.
