Saigner – “To Bleed” – this is how we collected the juice for this rosé, by "bleeding" the juice from of our top red varietals on the day we crushed them into tank.  We start with Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Syrah, Petite Sirah, just to name a few, and then we saignee the juice from the tank. We then ferment as a white wine, nice, slow and cold, retaining all the fruit and floral aromas. It is a perfect choice for red wine drinkers in the summer or white wine drinkers that want a fuller bodied wine for food.

Aromatics:  Deep floral aromas of violet, peach and raspberry with candied watermelon

On the Palate: Cherry, strawberry and red fruit with herbal notes of lavender and roses

I'm a Rose lover from way back so I'm happy to see Rose making a comeback. This one from Becker is particularly wonderful, and so happy to have found it. It's wonderful with cheese, fish and chicken dishes or just to enjoy on its own. Will keep buying as long as Becker keeps making it!
