Tasting Notes

Soft hues of peach, coral and Coho salmon, the Matchbook Rosé is an estate-bottled blend of three clones of Tempranillo enriched by small percentages of Rosés of Malbec, Syrah and Tannat —all grown on our Matchbook Vineyard. Beautiful aromas of peaches and cream with a hint of strawberry, melon and freshly sliced cantaloupe. Crisp and refreshing on the palate with flavors of peach and cola. The finish is mouth-wateringly long with a hint of tangerine. Serve this Rosé well chilled, as an aperitif, with a cheese plate or paired with ahi tuna.

Winemaker Notes

Our winemakers take care to create the best Rosé of Tempranillo we can, blending juice bled from the three Tempranillo clones grown on Matchbook’s estate vineyard—Rioja, Duero and Tinta de Toro. This juice is then cold fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The fermentation, carried out at 52 degrees Fahrenheit, takes almost two months to complete, producing a wine with lively aromatics and a beautiful Coho salmon color. We blend in small amounts of Rosé from Malbec, Syrah and Tannat for added complexity.

Pairings

Poached ahi tuna, dates stuffed with almonds and blue cheese, or as an early evening apéritif.
