Description

The Foreign Affair Winery Amarosé 2016

A solid rosé with full flavours yet still is crisp & dry. Rose gold in colour with a low to medium intense nose. This wine strawberry, cherry, watermelon, pear, raspberry and rhubarb. Medium body with good acidity and a good long length.
Partial grape drying in the Appassimento method brings out the flavours in this rosé.The wine is so versatile, it pairs with an array of food. Enjoy this wine with fresh spinach salad topped by strawberries and poppy seed dressing, grilled Halloumi cheese, grilled trout, a nice charcuterie platter including candied salmon and prosciutto, fried calamari with tzatziki, shrimp cocktail, and pan seared tuna steaks. 

Combining the old traditional method of Appassimento with a delicate new world Rosé - the birth of an amazing combination and results.

 Appassimento is a method of concentrating flavours by drying grapes, originally in Italy. It's an odd technique on a delicate wine style like rosé. However, this is tasty with fleshy ripe strawberries. A blend of Pinot Noir and unoaked Chardonnay. Pair with planked salmon.
