Thirty Bench Winemaker’s Rosé 2021


Pale salmon in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild effervescent notes along with crisp dry acidity and a hint of zesty tartness. Lots of crisp minerality and strawberries coming through. There’ some unusual flavors that I couldn’t place, perhaps from the pinot meunier, the back of the bottle says it’s a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Gamay Noir. I would give it an 87-88, a nice crisp dry rose, but a little odd, and honestly, at this price you can do way better with a Provence rose. I only bought one, but would likely return it otherwise. We paired it with a cheddar and blue cheese burger and it went nicely.
