Woodstock Grenache Rose 2011
The crushed grapes are cold soaked for up to 24 hours to allow good colour and flavour. The skins are then lightly pressed and discarded while the juice ferments slowly until the desired level of natural residual sweetness is reached. The ferment is stopped with chilling and the finished wine is held cold in tanks, then bottled in small runs to ensure freshness.

Fresh fruits on the nose and palate, which will be a good for a hot day. Quite a young wine so don't expect too much depth.
Had this at a Woodstock brand wine tasting session. Amongst all of its offerings I must say this fared best with me. Sweet, uncomplicated. Raspberries and Rose petals, I really felt the rosewater note. Easy drinking wine for a hot day. Serve well chilled.
Food Pairings for Woodstock Grenache Rose
Bright crimson in colour, this wine is bursting with luscious summer berries on the nose and palate. Ripe strawberries, fresh raspberries, turkish delight, rosewater and fairy floss all feature. It's natural acidity and sweetness is balanced, its finish is clean and crisp and utterly morish!
