Irresistible in spring and summer, a versatile food pairing wine that brings additional enjoyment to Fall seasonal fare.
Quivira’s 2016 Rose is a Grenache-dominated vintage that seduces with an appealing strawberry aroma followed by a delicate, yet full-flavored palate. Thoroughly refreshing, the wine displays just the right amount of soft, gentle vibrancy naturally retained from the long, cool fermentation and aging sur lies. The flavors of white peach, nectarine, and orange rind are focused, concentrated and long.
Blend: 68% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 4% Petite Sirah, 3% Counoise
93 points: Wine Enthusiast | This Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre rosé is a stunning marriage of flavors and textures. Salmon in color, it invites with apricot, peach and Meyer lemon fruit, zesty acidity underlying its flavor, complexity, and length.
Quivira Vineyards is planted to traditional Mediterranean varieties of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, the backbone of most wines made in Provence and the southern Rhone Valley. The grapes are farmed with a single purpose – to craft wines of the highest caliber. Quivira’s home vineyard, Wine Creek Ranch, possesses a nearly identical climate to Provence – 3,000 hours of sun, warm summers and mild winters. It is the perfect location to nurture the varieties universally considered to make the finest Rosé. From vineyard to bottle, this is an intentional Rosé – a sustained commitment throughout the vintage that yields only the best Rosé.
