Tasting Notes: Watermelon, Apricot, Strawberry, Lemon Rind
The 2020 Folk Machine Gamay Noir Rosé is their 5th Rosé from Gamay grapes grown in Arroyo Seco. This year they again used an Antique Green lightweight bottle which contains a much higher amount of recycled product. Only 355 cases made.
Everything thing about this wine is ultra light - color, body, acid, and aroma. However; it is vivacious and energetic, and dry. It covers the palate with bright, tangy citrus, watermelon, strawberry, cherry, pear, and bubble gum flavors with crisp white peppery accents and a lingering, mouthwatering finish. Pair with herb crusted trout or buttermilk fried calamari.
