2003 Grenache Rosé

2003 Grenache Rosé Wine Details

Description: A DRY, CRISP, PINK WINE bursting with strawberry and watermelon fruit flavors! Like Sushi? Like Thai food? Better than beer! Great for a barbecue on a warm spring evening, great for the holidays too. "A delicious choice for turkey dinner is dry rose. This one is juicy and fresh, bursting with cherry, watermelon, and even a touch of tart cranberry flavors." - The New York Times

Varietal Definition
Grenache Noir is the world’s most widely planted grape used to make red wine, sometimes made into a stand-alone varietal, frequently as a Rosé, but most often as a backbone of red blends. Its strength is its ability to grow in arid and windy conditions. It’s particularly suited to warm coastal regions of California, Spain and France. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth and a sweet berry character.Used as a component in some Northern Rhône reds, nearly exclusively for Rhône Rosés and as the primary component in nearly all Southern Rhône red blends, Grenache is probably most notable as the base varietal for Chateauneuf du Pape, Cotes du Rhône and Gigondas. In spite of its fame coming from French wines, Spain is most likely this grape’s origin.
