Peconic Bay Winery Merlot North Fork Rosé 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Merlot grapes were harvested in the early morning and allowed to soak on their skins for 18 hours. Contact with the skins enabled the fresh juice to pick up some color. Yielding grapefruit character in its mouthfeel the wine provides hints of tea leaves and rose petals.

The grapes, the progeny of the soil, are the key to any successful winer y. At Peconic Bay Winery, we have been entrusted with the care and nurturing of some of the oldest vines on the North Fork, a precious legacy. These fine assets, in the hands of individuals passionate about coaxing the best from the vine and the cellar, set the stage at our vineyard for the creation of premium varietal wines. We are committed to making wines of distinction from rolling acres of vineyards, sloping gently down to the Peconic Bay and rising majestically up to the Long Island Sound, in this bucolic corner of heaven known as the North Fork. We hope to make the experience of tasting our wines enjoyable and memorable for both the connoisseur and those with a more casual appreciation of wine. We look forward to welcoming you at Peconic Bay Winery on the Main Road in Cutchogue. Our wines are the product of the soil and mild climate of Cutchogue, Long Island, the town with the most days of sunshine and the longest growing season in New York State. Read less

Made with merlot grapes with some steel-fermented chardonnay, and the result is fresh and thirst quenching. On the nose there's a lot of citrus--grapefruit and lime--with hints of watermelon and watermelon. It's lively on the palate and tastes like a fresh watermelon slice sprinkled with fresh lime juice...without the sweetness of fresh watermelon. Nicely balanced acidity leaves it clean on the finish.

As much as I love it when wine drinkers "get" rosé, I love it even more when wineries do. In the past, Peconic Bay Winery has made some sweet, koolaid-esque rosé. It was fruity, sugary and probably extremely popular with the White Zin crowd. But, this new rosé - a dry, elegant one - is quite different. According to the back label, it's made with Merlot grapes with some steel-fermented Chardonnay, and the result is fresh and thirst quenching. On the nose there's a lot of citrus - grapefruit and lime - with hints of watermelon. It's lively on the palate and tastes like a fresh watermelon slice sprinkled with fresh lime juice...without the sweetness of fresh watermelon. Nicely balanced acidity leaves it clean on the finish. It's probably best suited to sipping on its own, but I could see enjoying this with any summer lunch - salads, sandwiches, seafood.While not as nuanced as some of the other local 2006 rosés on the market, it's still a good, satisfying rosé for $14. And at the end of the day, isn't that what rosé is supposed to be, satisfying?
