Steele Cabernet Franc Rosť 2016
Buy a Bottle (750ml)
The Cabernet Franc grown to make this rosé comes from the Steele Stymie Bench Vineyard a few miles from the winery. The vineyard is one of the most well-manicured vineyards, not a cane out of place, not a weed where is doesn't belong. The cabernet franc grown here is of exceptional quality.
WINE STYLE & TASTING NOTES
A forty-eight hour cold soak of the Stymie Bench VineyardCabernet Franc is how this rosé began. Beautiful pink juice is drained off by gravity and yeast is added to ferment in a separate stainless tank at a cool temperature of 50F. The result is a crisp, refreshing wine. Our Cabernet Franc rosé has strawberry, basil, and citrus zest on the nose, with flavors of watermelon, and tropical fruit; with a bright acidic finish. This is a seasonal and very limited release that sells out very quickly each vintage.
Try with a variety of dishes such as Nicoise salad, asparagus and cheese tartines, chicken street tacos, or even bbq pork ribs
