Rockets Red Rosé Grenache, 2019

Produced by Rockets Red Wine

This Rosé was made with the saignée method, which produces a richer kind of rose than other methods. This winemaking technique shows through in its fantastic color - a deep magenta. Expect aromas of cherry, raspberry and minerality - accompanied by great acid and a refreshing finish.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

Saignée rosé, juice bled into tank after 30 hrs on skins. Wine picks up intense color and additional tannins in this process.

"This wine just captivated me! It was the first time I ever smelled and tasted guava in a wine. It is a perfect warm afternoon day drinking wine."

Bill Newman | @billwine5 Tastemaker

"TOP SECRET 🚀 Tasting notes: Pale strawberry color. Medium [-] intensity aromas of rose petals, blossom and strawberry with youthful characteristics. Medium acidity and dry on the palate with medium intensity flavors of same with traces of apricot and white peaches, medium alcohol (13.9 ABV), medium body on a prolonged finish. Very good wine. Drink now, as with most rosé wines you want to enjoy this pool or lake side. A rosé for red wine drinkers.
