Food Pairings for Quivira Rose North Coast
At many wineries, the rosé program is merely a by-product of other wine production, often from red wine lots that are “bled” to intensify color. Not so here at Quivira; our rosé is very intentionally crafted. Grapes are first carefully crushed, then given limited cold soak and pressed gently like a white wine. After the juice is allowed to settle, fermentation takes place in stainless steel at cool temperatures. The wine spends a short period in neutral French oak before bottling. Mourvedre is a spicier varietal than Grenache, which is best known for its singular fresh strawberry character. In this bottling, the strawberry element is surrounded and amplified by spice, rhubarb and a more complex range of fruits…yielding an arguably more intriguing nose that is fresh and clean, pierced with hints of orange zest. Rosé has a wonderful seasonality, and this release’s lovely, refreshing juiciness makes it the perfect wine to enjoy with friends on a warm summer evening. Imminently quaffable, without a trace of heaviness.
