Anthony Road Rosé of Cabernet Franc 2015

anthonyrdrose

Winery: Anthony Road Wine Company is a family run winery founded in 1973 by Ann and John Martini and located on the west side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York state. At the time of founding the estate, John was employed by Cornell University at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York, and originally the vineyards were planted with hybrid varietals. Thru the years, all of the hybrids have been replaced with European grape varietals, and the estate now comprises 45 acres of vineyards.

Winemaking: The vineyards are farmed according to New York State’s sustainable viticulture program. Fermented in stainless steel, then aged for 5 months in neutral French barrels before returning back to stainless steel until bottling.

Tasting Notes: Coral pink in colour with bright aromas of strawberry, cantaloupe and slate minerals. Easygoing fruit flavours reflect the aromas and join a zippy acidity along with streaks of clean minerality, culminating in a wonderfully dry finish. Fantastic for sipping on its own and with light summer dishes.
