GRENACHE “Angels & Cowboys” (USA)
Tasting Note: Flowers and citrus blossom on the nose, racy grapefruit and refreshing minerality in the mouth.
Food Matching: This dry Rosé is one of those rare wines that work well with vegetable dishes and spicy ethnic foods. Enjoy it with roast chicken, salmon, seared tuna, summer salads and any sushi from vegetables to strong fish, crab cakes, shrimp cocktails and ceviche.
Vinification: Angels & Cowboys Rosé was made using the traditional Provençal method. To preserve nature’s generosity along with old-world tradition, the grapes were harvested at 21° brix. This retained the youthfulness of the fruit, creating a wine style both vibrant and complex. The grapes were lightly crushed and left to macerate on their skin. Once the juice achieved its perfect pale pink hue and began to show fragrant phenols from the skin-contact, the juice was pressed off the must then closely monitored while it underwent a long cool fermentation. Upon completion of fermentation, the Rosé aged on its yeast lees for a little over 2 months, creating great depth and mouthfeel.
