Wine Review: This pale salmon colored wine opens with a watermelon and maraschino cherry bouquet with hints of lime zest. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round, and juicy. The flavor profile is a tangerine and lime blend with notes of gentle stony minerality and honeydew melon. I also detected hints of white pepper and maraschino cherry towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. This Rose is very easy to drink and was liked by all that tried it. I would pair it with the beach and a mahi mahi sandwich this summer. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine shows a pale peach hue with vibrant luminosity. The wine opens with complex aromas of stone fruit, watermelon, lychee, crushed oyster shells and a delicate hint of fresh floral. The palate is clean and focused with long, lean acid and savory minerality. Malene Rosé can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods such as linguine with chevre or with Baja fish tacos.
