A four season Rose’ rests atop the pack as Summer Water by Winc heads into the Fall season. This author has traditionally been swayed towards other choices when rose’ was in the mix, however, has become a fan of this particular selection and has stocked his stash full for the Winter months.
This dry rosé reflects the pale pink promise of the perfect warm-weather wine. It’s perfectly crisp, lighthearted and destined for a good time. The grapes for this Central Coast Grenache and Syrah blend were picked early in the season to achieve a natural acidity that’s ideal for the end of Summer / beginning of Fall drinking. To ensure as little extraction from the skins as possible, we used the direct press method, retaining the delicate fruit aromas and pale color rosé is known for. The result is light, crisp, and dry - with notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit, rose, and orange blossom.
