Grenache Rose 2017

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of strawberry, watermelon and grapefruit are reflected on the palate, with added notes of tangerine. The juicy fruit and crisp acidity are juxtaposed, giving way to the sweet-tart flavors. Enjoy throughout the seasons, from spring to fall.

Wines of the Week, Chuck Hill,
"Abacela crafts most of their wines from grapes grown at their estate Fault Line Vineyard near Roseburg, Oregon.  The winery receives praise for their Old World winemaking style, featuring lean character and racy acidity. Enjoy this delightful rosé with light meals for its aromas and flavors of strawberry, watermelon and spice with a refreshing kick of mineral and acidity on the finish."
