Salengo Wine Bundle
2018 ROSÉ OF PINOT NOIR - TASTING NOTES
The Salengo Rosé of Pinot Noir is fun and refreshing. Pale pink in color to match this wine’s delicate fruit flavors, it’s dry with a full mid-palate and finishes with slate-like minerality. This wine is very aromatic and perfect for spring and summer dining. The nose opens with honeysuckle and maraschino cherry and develops into fresh orange blossom and juicy ruby red grapefruit with subtle notes of watermelon rind and candied peaches. Soft upon entry, bright notes of tart cherry and fresh citrus build to a full mid-palate with alluring flavors of wild strawberry and lingering hints of lemongrass. A clean finish with layers of rhubarb, mandarin peel and nuanced red fruit balance the acid of this wine well and make it a perfect food wine.
Pairing recommendations: rich shellfish like lobster and crab, seared salmon, grilled chicken, pasta with alfredo, salads, fruit, white-rind cheeses like brie
Ideal serving temperature: 45°-55° Fahrenheit
2018 GRENACHE - TASTING NOTES
Vibrant red fruit welcomes the nose with aromas of wet stone and subtle hints of forest floor. The palate delivers a wild red raspberry/cherry licorice that is consistent with its light red color, while savory smoked meat and spices linger in the background to wrap up with a layered, velvety textured finish complimented by fine-grained tannins. This well-balanced wine pairs well with any tapas dish or a coq au vin.
