Wine Review: This light pink colored Rose from Yorkville Cellars is very good. It opens with a fragrant tangerine and strawberry bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty clementine and lime blend with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of strawberry and white pepper. The finish is dry and its refreshing acidity lingers nicely after the wine is gone. I would pair this wine with shrimp cocktail. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Style: Dry, traditional western Loire Color: Salmon pink Aromas: Floral with a pleasant herbaceousness, and citrus Flavors: Watermelon, dried strawberries with slight vegetal notes This wine is dry and particularly refreshing, allowing it to cross all kinds of food barriers. Some ideas: BBQ chicken, wok-charred crisp vegetables, grilled fish with chutney or shrimp with sweet-spicy cocktail sauces.
