2019 Seaglass Monterey County Rose

2019 Seaglass Monterey County Rose

¥2,530 (incl. tax)

Excellent rosé at a price that makes stocking up for spring and summer a no-brainer! Pale pink, crisp and fresh, Seaglass rosé beautifully expresses the cool coastal terroir of Monterey County. In 2019, Seaglass made a big change to the blend, emphasizing Pinot Noir (49%) with 29% Grenache, 22% Syrah. Following gentle crushing and a brief maceration, the grapes aren’t pressed but simply drained of lightly-colored juice, which goes into stainless steel tanks for fermentation at cold temperatures without malolactic fermentation. The result is a brilliant shade of light pink and a wine that balances fresh cherry and raspberry flavors with mouthwatering acidity for a crisp, clean finish. Try it with light summer appetizers, such as prosciutto with melon, Thai seafood salad, or crab cakes with spicy aioli.

Winery Description

They say that “life’s too short for cheap wine.” But who really has the energy (or the pocketbook) to drink only the most artisanal wines? In fact, we’re often in situations where we can’t simply open our high-scoring, well-aged, collectable wines - a weeknight, after a soccer game or when a friend just happens to pop in. Named for the jewel-like, naturally-polished glass stones you might discover on a beach, SeaGlass wines are made for good times with friends or family, when an inexpensive but enjoyable wine can add surprise and joy to an otherwise mundane occasion. They are lively, flavorful, and well-made; easy to drink and “anxiety-free” to open. Part of the Trinchero Family Estates portfolio of wineries, SeaGlass produces Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from excellent vineyards in Santa Barbara and Monterey, near the Pacific coast, where the climate is cool, the growing season long, and the wines fruity and crisp. These wines are perfect with food. Medium-bodied, full of flavor and bright acidity, they match a wide range of Asian, Mediterranean, European and Latin American cuisines.
