Food Pairings for Ortman Family Vineyards Syrah Paso Robles Rosé
Ships to: CA, CO, FL, HI, ID, IL, IA, MN, MO, NM, NV, NY, OR, TX, VA, WA, WV, and WI Will this wine live up to the repuation established by it's big brother (sister?) The 2005 Rosé received 90 point ratings and love notes from Rachel Ray. Can its younger 2006 sibling continue to build on such kudos? Let's see what the winemaker has to say about it... Winemaker's Notes: Our 2006 Syrah Rosé follows in the tradition of the dry rosés favored in Europe's warmer climates for their refreshing, food-friendly qualities. our Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing and enjoying these delicious seasonal wines. This Rosé begins with lively aromas of lavender, strawberry, watermelon and honey. A round, creamy texture bursts with seamless flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and green apple. Brisk acidity and hints of nutty spice unfold into a long, dry finish. This versatile wine pairs well with a wide variety of classic spring and summer fare, including green salads, gourmet hamburgers with smoked gouda, smoked chicken and light pasta dishes. My Tasting Notes: What do I have to say about this wine? Simply, YUM. Sorry, that's not a sophisticated wine review, but this wine isn't one to take itself too seriuosly. Besides, it's what you're going to say should some of this wine find its way into your mouth. You see, Ortman harvests these Syrah grapes specifically for Rosé, which means this wine is not a by product of red wine production, as many are. That means the grapes can be harvested earlier than those intended for red wines, a full two weeks earlier, thus preserving the precious acidity that drives the pleasure this wine delivers. And acidity it has - measuring in at TA = .62 and pH of 3.47. Those numbers may not mean anything to you, but to me they hint at lip smacking pleasures to come. Go get a corkscrew. 320 Cases produced.
