Belle Glos 2015 Pinot Noir Blanc, Oeil De Perdrix, Sonoma
Here's something new and unique from the Wagner Family. A lively Belle Glos rose produced entirely from Pinot Noir. Oeil De Perdrix means "eye of the partridge" in French and it's the term they use for these pale-copper colored rose wines. The grapes are grown in their vineyards in Sonoma with the specific purpose of producing a ripe and vibrant rose. To make this wine it requires a deft hand to press the
juice quickly once it reaches the desired level of color. The juice is fermented
partially in French oak barrels, which adds enough rich texture and light
spice to beautifully complement the generous fruit-filled flavors. Citrus and strawberry aromas carry through to the palate with bright acidity and hints of pink grapefruit and lemon zest. Mineral nuances and a balanced richness fill the mid-palate and lead to a long-lasting finish. Sip it on its own or pair it with rich foods. Limited.
Having tried quite a few rose's over the years, and not being particularly fond of most, we tried the Belle Glos Pinot Noir Blanc at my brothers a few months back. We were very impressed. This is a great wine for summer afternoons sitting on the patio, at the beach, or on your yacht( f you should be so lucky!!!).Sharing good wine and good conversation.Give it a try's.
