Wine Enthusiast:

Light pink in color, this wine offers laser-sharp, zesty aromas, with pink limeade, pink grapefruit and crushed white-rock scents. There's lots of life to the palate, where a cement minerality unites ripe flavors of watermelon, tart nectarine, white peach and strawberry.

Product Description:

"Malene Rose is inspired by the classic Roses of Provence, the winegrowing region in southern France renowned for its vibrant, beautifully-hued wines. Modeled on these wines, Malene sources traditional Rose grape varietals -- Grenache, Mourvedre and Vermentino (known as Rolle in France) -- from California's Central Coast. As in Provence, this region features Mediterranean climates, sunny and warm during the day but with close proximity to the ocean to cool the vines at night. These coastal growing conditions produce grapes that are highly aromatic, while also providing the structure needed for the wine’s balance and finesse.

Malene has layered complexity with aromatics of citrus, stone fruit, orange blossom and a note of minerality. Like a fine, dry white wine, Malene Rose can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods, its layered versatility allowing for easy entertaining, both casual and formal. Well-suited to picnics and barbecues, its sophisticated, jewel-toned color and impeccably balanced texture make the wine an equally elegant match for refined dishes possessing complex flavors." - Importer
