2019 Summer Water Bubbly Rose
Wine Enthusiast: A pale salmon-pink color in the glass, this widely available bottling of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah delivers a fantastic nose of melon, bubblegum and soft rose petals. It’s clean and chalky on the palate, with a light cantaloupe flavor and a surprisingly long finish. Sparkling

#56 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2020: This dry rosé reflects the pale pink promise of the perfect warm-weather wine. It’s delightfully 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 summer 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, aromatic, and dry – with notes of melon, peach, rose, and citrus. Summer-friendly fare like shellfish, ceviche, and salads will pair swimmingly or just drink it chilled with the ones you love.
Wilfred Wong: The 2019 Summer Water® Rosé is an excellent example of a well-made, serious wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright and fresh with aromas and flavors of lively, red fruits, and savory spices. Pair it with a serving of crispy skin, pork belly, and a side salad of red leaf lettuce and arugula. (Tasted: May 25, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
