Normally I would be the one to tell you about our rosé but this time it will be our partner, Louis….
Forge Cellars – Pinot Noir Rosé 2014
100% Pinot Noir
East side of Seneca Lake…Standing Stone Upper Red Block #1
Full bunches/clusters crushed and macerated for a few hours. After the “saignée”, gentle pressing.
Fermented at low temperature in a stainless steel vat.
This is without a doubt the best rosé we have made since Forge was created in 2011. It’s particularly nice to write this since making a good rosé wine is quite difficult. Let’s celebrate this great fruity, complex and fresh rosé made with Pinot Noir. We can be happy with this achievement since Pinot Noir is not an especially easy grape to deal with for a rosé wine. A real wine of joy which has to be drunk before the end of the summer, just in case you need a good reason to drink it immediately.
Please drink it with grilled vegetables, grilled fish, or taste it for the aperitive, along with “pata negra ham”.. This is one of the only wines which could cop with hot food such as asian dishes. This is good to know when the time comes to organize a food and wine pairing with a Curry !..
Fresh cherries, raspberry, lavanda (lavender)
Production: not much
