Beautifully transparent and coral pink in color, the 2017 Rosé is bright and refreshing. Prominent floral aromas complement fruits like strawberry, grapefruit, lychee, white peach, and key lime, with undertones of black cherry from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a creamy entry, opening up to ripe strawberry, tangerine, dark cherry, and citrus tones. There is good weigh on the palate, with a clean finish. We have bottled this wine in a convenient twist cap and recommend consuming it within one year to enjoy the fruit freshness. Serve at 50–55°F.
The 2017 is the inaugural release of the Pine Ridge Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvignon Blanc is thought to have originated in the southwest of France as an indigenous grape, the name coming from the French sauvage meaning “wild,” and blanc meaning “white.” Eventually it made its way to Bordeaux, so our winemaking team thought it suitable to produce this white to complement our Cabernet Sauvignons.
