Springtime Rosé

On the hunt for a great springtime wine? Look no further than our Wine Club Selection Rosé of Pinot Gris!

This limited-production rosé is made from Pinot Gris grapes that were harvested late in the 2017 season. The wine has nuances of candied strawberries, pomegranate, and watermelon. Crafted with the casual wine consumer in mind, it offers versatile semi-sweet flavors that even non-wine drinkers will enjoy.

Facts

  • 100% Pinot Gris
  • 100% locally-grown grapes from Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas.
  • 12% ABV (alcohol by volume)
  • 3% RS (residual sugar) This is the sugar that remains in the wine after the fermentation process.
  • Fermented and aged in stainless steel for a crisp, vibrant taste.
  • Pinot Gris is almost always produced as a white wine, but in exceptional years it can be made as a rosé as well. In order to acheive this, the grapes must be of high quality and the wine must stay in contact with the skins for at least 8 weeks.

Food Pairing

  • Cheese and Charcuterie
  • Blue Cheese Dip with Crudité
  • Green Salads with Poppy Seed Dressing
  • Roasted Chicken with Italian Seasoning
  • Grilled Salmon with Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
  • Fresh Fruit Tarts

For a refreshing treat, combine a bottle of the Rosé of Pinot Gris with frozen fruit and ice in a blender.  To bring out the flavors of the wine, we recommend frozen watermelon and strawberries.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Ferris State University where I studied Writing and Business and have been a Northern Michigan resident for about three years.
