WOW - Wine of the Week - Barroubio Minervois Rose

2014 Domaine de Barroubio Minervois Rosé...$13.99
40% Syrah, 60% Grenache
The Barroubio Rosé is “rosé de saignée”. This means that juice is pulled out of the tank before the red grape skins have an opportunity to add much color to the wine. Since the juice is white and the skins are deep red, the result of this process is a brilliant pink color with hints of fuchsia.  This is a beautiful bright pink rosé with a subtle magenta hue. The nose is perfumed with hints of strawberry, cherry, and floral notes. In the mouth the wine is dominated by cherry and raspberry flavors. The finish is vibrant, and very mineral, making this wine a great aperitif. However, Barroubio’s rosé is also a perfect match for salmon, pork tenderloin, and poultry dishes.
