92 Points, Christopher Deas | Once again, the Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rose 2017 has an awesome and inviting peach-juice texture. While a concentrated, fuller-bodied expression of Rosé – like 2016. Yet we prefer it to 2015 with its slightly crisper style. Sure, there is some zip and acidity, but what scream here is its signature soft glycerin mouthful and nuances of mango, cantaloupe, tangerines, ripe strawberries, honeysuckle, and rose petals. As a result, simply a fun and easy wine to enjoy. Finally, succulent deliciousness separating this from other Rosé.
Serve Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rose 2017 lightly chilled solo or complementing almost any food. At cocktail parties, it will shine alongside hors d’oeuvres such as smoked salmon, lobster, shrimp, carpaccio, and soft cheeses. Of course, complementing main-course fish and pork dishes, and at Thanksgiving, perfect with turkey.
