See Ya Later Ranch 2022 Nelly
Our Nelly Rosé is medium pink colour with aromas and flavours of strawberry, rhubarb, cherry and a bright, citrusy finish. This acid is perfectly balanced making each sip as refreshing as the last. This Rosé is a crowd favourite for a reason!
Spring was very warm resulting in an earlier than usual bud break. Good weather continued until Late Summer where it started to cool off early September through November. Being situated high atop of the valley, our Hawthorne Mountain Vineyard was kept free of botrytis due to the high winds keeping fruit relatively dry. 2019 is a big year for Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir with later ripening varietals having more of a lighter approach.
A blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Pinotage. Each varietal was treated separately and blended together to combine vibrant fruits with refreshing acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Try it with: Watermelon salad with halloumi cheese and a Nelly infused vinaigrette, roasted garlic hummus with warm pitas, or spicy sausage on a bun with grilled peppers. Also recommended on its own on a hot summer day with your crew!
