Rose' is all the rage this summer
White Pine released our first dry rose', Ladyslipper Blush, in 2017. It is decidedly pink with aromas and flavors of fresh cherries and strawberries - a perfect summer sipper. But the trend among some in the wine community has been toward rose's that are ever more pale and light. Now the jury is in and the verdict is: pale rose' is acidic and often without flavor. On the other hand rose's that are harvested later with riper grapes and more color have yielded more desriable wines with better flavor, color and balance.
Our wine maker, Dr. Dave Miller, structured the White Pine Lady Slipper Blush / Rose' to reflect the better balance and flavor of ripe grapes. "We harvest later to be sure we have ripe flavors", says Dr. Dave. The wine may have a bit more color but that just reflects the riper flavors you can expect from this delicious summer sipper.
