2019 Peller Rose

Salmon in color with a nice strawberry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays nice crisp strawberry notes to match the nose along with some nice citrus acidity. On the medium length finish the wine is nice and dry with the citrus acidity living on nicely in the mouth. I would give it an 88 or so. We paired it with BBQ ribs and the crisp acidity cut through the fat and sweetness of the sauce perfectly, and the nice flavors held there own. from the winery’s web site: $22.95 We bought it at the wine shop at Longos.

Private Reserve Rosé 2018

Inspired by the refreshing Rosés of Provence, this pretty pink wine is made from a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Harvested from the vineyards of long-standing growers for Peller Estates. This Rosé is a blend of 87% Pinot Noir, 10% Gamay Noir and 3% Pinot Meunier grapes which were allowed several hours of skin contact for a perfect pink colour, then whole bunch pressed, cool fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. Bottled early for full fruit expression.

Delicate copper pink colour with a pretty aroma of freshly picked peach, melon, red berry and Rainier cherry. A light, dry and refreshing Rosé. The palate is refreshed with flavours of wild field berries, red apple and pear. Lively notes of cranberry and red berries linger through on the finish.

Serve chilled at 10 to 12ºC. Casually sip on warm spring and summer days or enjoy with a Greek salad; summer salads with feta cheese; feta bruschetta; barbecued shrimp skewers; crab cakes; grilled calamari; poached salmon; pork tenderloin with a rhubarb rosé wine reduction; tapas; pissaladiere; Margherita pizza; pasta with rosé sauce; eggplant parmigiana. Enjoy this wine while young and fresh
