The 2018 growing season here in the Yadkin Valley was marked by significant rainfall in the early spring and summer. Warmer, sunnier days came at just the right time to help slowly ripen the fruit. We watched closely to harvest at just the optional times pre and post Hurricane Florence. This allowed the fruit to mature in a well-balanced fashion. This crisp and elegant Rosé wine is layered with enticing aromas of watermelon, bright cherry and raspberry. Strawberry, raspberry and citrus tantalize the palate ending with a lip-smacking finish. This is a very enjoyable wine alone and also pairs well with goat cheese, salads with vinaigrettes, shellfish, roasted vegetables, fruit salads or a bad day. This wine should be consumed within the next four to five years to savor the balance of fruit and acidity. Enjoy!
