Awards: 89 Points Wine Enthusiast
A brilliant shade of pink, this bottling offers plenty of melon, rose and chalk aromas on the nose. The palate grabs hold with just enough texture, leading into lemon and cantaloupe flavors. It pairs especially well with crab salads, mussels, and prosciutto
From Seaglass Rose from Monterey County is one of the best values in the market today. Grapes are sourced from northern Monterey where cool breezes and fog blowing in from the Pacific Ocean, allow the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly as they develop the delicate fragrances, silky structure, bright acidity and complex flavors. Crafted in a minimalist style to show off the wine's bright, fresh flavors, pretty aromas and lovely pale pink color, winemakers use a gentle touch from start to finish. The wine is composed entirely of free run juice with no pressed grapes at all, resulting in a softer-styled, lighter-bodied wine. To preserve the wine's delicate fragrance and crisp acidity, winemakers forego malolactic fermentation. Instead, the wine is cold fermented in stainless steel to capture the purest expression of fruit, 49% Pinot Noir, 29% Grenache, 22% Syrah.
This wine was a Platinum Award winner at the 2020 Monterey International Wine Competition with a 91 point score. They said "A fresh, dry rosé that’s waiting for summer fun. Strawberry, citrus and bay leaf aromas and flavors show just a little spritz so close to bottling, and it adds a zesty freshness to the proceedings. I appreciate the dry character here – well done!"
