Sándor’s 2015 Rose’ of Grenache drinks like a mature wine. When you inhale its lovely fragrance, you’ll find rich berries and toasty oak which continue in the mouth where the abundance of fruit continues with deep, red berry flavors. The wine coats the mouth with strawberry and toast overtones, balanced by crisp acids which linger on the palate.
2015 was an exceptional growing season perfect for making this formidable Rosé wine. Unlike many Rosés, where juice is separated from the skins immediately after pressing, these grapes were crushed and the juice left on the skins for fermentation. This process gave the wine its deep, rosy hue and rich mouth feel. This wine had the substantial fruit and body to merit limited aging in new oak for 10 months. A combination of
Hungarian, French and American Oak barrels were used.
