Valley Oaks Syrah Rosé

Valley Oaks Syrah Rosé Wine Details

Description: "In many parts of the world, a Dry Rosé is just the thing for a hot summer day. It’s also common for vacations to stretch for weeks. I think they’re on to something. Our Syrah Rosé is dry (not so sweet) and tastes like a glass of summer-ripe raspberries. It’s crisp and delicate, with fruity aromas. Have a sip and start imagining your own overseas vacation." Dennis Martin Winemaker

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
