Our New Russian River Rosé Will Be a Favorite Spring Wine
by EnRoute on April 14, 2020
We’ve released our first-ever Russian River Rosé, and this captivating new EnRoute wine is as delightful to drink as its name implies!
Called Facile à Boire (translation: easy to drink), our EnRoute rosé fills the palate with notes of wild strawberries and just-picked cherries. The perfume hints at cherry blossoms and wildflowers, and the wine possesses bright acidity that literally makes your mouth water. A distinct minerality lingers on the finish, reminding us that the best rosé wines can be both refreshing and sophisticated.
“I’m often asked what is rosé wine? ” says EnRoute Winemaker Michael Accurso. “While there are so many types – and shades! – of rosé, the simplest definition is that it’s a pink-hued wine made by allowing the skins of red wine grapes to have contact with the wine for only a short time.
“Our red grapes happen to be some of the best Pinot Noir we can get our hands on, with hand-selected Russian River Valley Pinot from as far north as our Amber Ridge Vineyard and as far south as the cool Green Valley sub-appellation coming together to make a 100% free run rosé of Pinot Noir. In the winery, we specifically craft our rosé so that the final wine possesses a rounder mouthfeel yet allows us to preserve that burst of mineral-acidity that makes it so refreshing. It’s a dynamite spring and summer wine, but honestly, EnRoute Facile à Boire is a Russian River rosé I’d uncork in all seasons.”
Filled with mouthwatering flavors and a zip of minerality, we’re pairing this delightful new Russian River wine with board games, books, tangy chicken salads, grilled fish and back porch sunsets.
