2018 Tinto Rey Estate Bottled Rose
It's Tinto Rey Rose season! Fresh and delicious, this pretty wine has a depth of flavor that makes it a crowd pleaser.
The 2018 Tinto Rey Rosé has a beautiful pale coral color from the co-fermentation of Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. Enticing aromas of white peach and nectarine lead to flavors of cream cola and sassafras that are balanced by a lively, tart cherry finish. There is some weight to this pretty wine and a bright finish with a lingering hint of tangerine.
The 2018 Tinto Rey Rosé is a blend of Matchbook Estate Grown Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. This wine is unique because it was co-fermented, meaning all three varietals were crushed and fermented together for better flavor integration. Our winemakers cold fermented (50 ̊F) the 2018 Rosé in stainless steel tanks to preserve the just-picked fresh fruit flavors. A wonderfully crisp and refreshing wine, and truth be told a favorite around here.
The perfect aperitif, it also pairs well with ceviche, deep fried calamari, cold shellfish and gazpacho.
