Our wine tonight is the Sweet Ellie Mae Rosé from Marked Tree Vineyard in Flat Rock, North Carolina.
Crest of the Blue Ridge- Henderson County AVA
Blend of estate grown Cabernet Franc and Vidal Blanc.
Light salmon in color.
The nose delicately shows evocations of red currants, citrus, rosé petals, and hibiscus.
Semi-sweet on the tongue. 2.5% residual sugar.
Flavor notes of sweet melon, blood orange, pink grapefruit, strawberry tarts, macintosh apples and light minerality on the finish. Elegantly balanced and refreshing.
$20 per bottle.
Winery Escapades scoring 90 points. Gold metal worthy.
The tasting room at Marked Tree Vineyard offers spectacular mountain views.
