La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Monterey County, Central Coast, California, United StatesThis Monterey, pinot noir pink is fermented in stainless steel to maintain its fresh, crisp, northern Pacific Ocean style. The colour is Provençal pink, the palate a delicate, crunchy mix of pink grapefruit, strawberries, watermelon, mandarin oranges with a touch of guava that precedes a barely dry, stony mineral finish. The grapes come off different sites across the Monterey appellation and an equally diverse mix of pinot clones 115, 667, 777, 2A, and Pommard. A cool year with a normal harvest beginning September 9 is behind this delicious rose. Think Margherita pizza, or steamed mussels.Tasted: 28 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 private wine shops, VIWF AB 28.00 private wine shops ON 27.95 LCBO QC 30.00 SAQ Producer: La CremaDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
