Amarosé 2017

Foreign Affair Winery once again pushed the boundaries of innovation with the release of a first-of-its-kind partial-appassimento rosé.

Tasting Notes:
This wine is a beautiful pink/salmon colour. The tantalizing aroma entices with ripe wild strawberries, tropical fruits, melon and citrus blossom. On the palate you will find a crisp acidity to balance the ripe fruit notes—leading to a lengthy, dry finish.

Winemaker Notes:
Our unique winemaking approach creates an outstanding balance between fresh fruit flavours and creamy complexity. Both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes were fermented and aged in stainless steel, giving the wine its fresh fruit aromas and flavours. The creamy texture comes from the appassimento portion (10%) of Chardonnay grapes that were dried naturally for 45 days before being pressed.

Wine and Food Pairing:
A perfect sipping wine on the deck, patio or dock! Serve with fresh spring and summer salads, fresh oysters, mussels, trout or salmon and dishes assembled with fresh fruits and vegetables from your local Farmers Market. Also, robust enough to pair with pork tenderloin and sausages and gourmet burgers fresh off the BBQ.

Awards and Accolades
89 Points – Amarosé 2017
“The winery calls this “a first-of-its-kind partial-appassimento rosé. The appassimento part comes from 10% dried Chardonnay added to the mostly Pinot Noir… It has a creamy feel on the palate and is richer than some rosés we’re seeing in Niagara but still, it has wonderful red berries and uplifting citrus accents on the finish.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13, 2018

Varietals – 87% Pinot Noir; 13% Chardonnay
Appassimento – 10%
