Juicy, sweet, fun.
Lake Country's pioneering Gray Monk (now owned by Andrew Peller) has recently released their 2021 Rose, which as usual is blends Rotberger and Gamay. It is a dusty salmon pink hue with notes of maraschino cherries, strawberry jellies, orange blossoms and earth. The palate is sweet and juicy with notes of candied pear, orange segments, sweet cherries and honey with a hint of cedar. Approachable and fun.
Suggested pairings include: Margherita pizza, Tapas, Greek salads, crab cakes; baked salmon, gazpacho, cheese and charcuterie, pork tenderloin with rhubarb sauce, chicken tagine, turkey with cranberry sauce or feta bruschetta.
