2017 Freisa Rosé
Our newest addition: a luscious, dry rosé that lives up to Nils Venge standards
Dry, crisp and pretty in pink! In the glass, its coral hue is intense and inviting. On the nose, the fragrance of wild strawberry and kaffir lime leaf meet you halfway to the first sip. Light flavors of raspberry and Victoria plum are balanced with hints of dried pear and apricot. It's forgiving, silky and yet crisp on the palate. Sure to be a crowd pleaser with its lingering finish.
The unusual Freisa varietal sourced for Saddleback's fragrant 2017 rosé was found growing in a Russian River vineyard when Nils grabbed it specifically to make a blush wine. After the results of the production effort were a success, Nils returned to the grower to ask for another Freisa contract for next year, and found that it was no longer available. So 2017 will be our only vintage of Freisa Rosé. Serve it chilled... Savor it while it lasts!
Pairs with delightful summer snacks including bruscetta, sweet pea & ricotta toast, richer fish like salmon, prosciutto with melon, turkey or ham and gruyere sandwiches on toasty foccacia.
