The Grenache for Anaba’s rosé was grown in the Landa Vineyard, in the foothills of the Mayacamas. Brix at harvest 23.3°, and the fruit was whole-cluster pressed, then fermented and aged in stainless steel. The result is a pale, orange-y salmon color offering a fragrance of macerated strawberries — almost strawberry jam — and apple blossoms. The body has a satiny, coating texture, plus more of that peach-strawberry flavor, but this time steeped in black tea. The finish offers some balancing grit and gravity.
This is a wine for charcuterie.
