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?

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.
