Shelton Vineyards: April 2018

Shelton Vineyards
286 Cabernet Ln. Dobson, NC

Rosé wines are wines of refreshment and the new release from Shelton Vineyards is an excellent example of the best a Rosé has to offer. The light pink color of the wine comes from the skins of red wine grapes. Many red wine grapes can be used to produce rosé, but Shelton’s signature rose is a blend of Merlot, Tannat, and Petit Verdot. When these grapes were brought from the field, they were gently handled to extract the juice with very little skin contact. This gives Shelton’s Rosé a very light pink color and aromas of cherry and strawberry. This light bodied wine has bright citrus flavors and a crisp finish. It is a versatile wine that pairs well with seafood, grilled beef and is great as a standalone evening wine. Shelton’s Two Fine Nine Rosé was is a limited production release and can only be purchased at the tasting room. So, come out to Shelton Vineyards and enjoy the spring weather with a refreshing glass of this excellent wine!
