2016 1149 Rosé
Aroma: fresh watermelon juice, bubble-gum, flower-scented lotion, potpourri, green apple, & pine needles
Palate:a combination of Maraschino cherry, crushed rocks, salted taffy, & rose water
Finish: the concrete fermentation helped integrate & balance the alcohol & acid; the few months in 500L barrels added a subtle, but nuanced, baked pretzel note on the finish!
Aging potential: drink now thru 2018
Pairing Recommendation | Bella Vittano Raspberry | Cow’s Milk (Wisconsin) * soaked with hand-crafted Raspberry Tart ale
