Wine Review: This Vin Gris from Calera opens with a funky clementine and watermelon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and zesty. The flavor profile is a mild mineral influenced strawberry and clementine blend with hints of white pepper and touch of lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would enjoy this on a hot summer day served slightly chilled with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a delightful, European-style dry Rosé, made of 100% Pinot Noir. The wine is light colored, fruity, crisp and flavorful. It displays inviting aromas of zesty grapefruit and white peach. Its bright, racy fruit flavors continue on the palate, where they mingle with notes of wild strawberry and citrus, all of which lead to a crisp, refreshing finish.
