2017 Wild Boar Rose
At the most basic level, dry rosés are revered as they bridge the dichotomy of red versus white wine. They bear a slight resemblance to their much loved red wines (in their color and red fruit flavors), but with their dry, crisp mouthfeel, dry rosés provide much needed refreshment. Further, given their similarities to both red and white wines, rosés have incredible food versatility. They have a lightness and freshness that is perfect for lighter fare (e.g., salads, charcuteries, fish, etc.), but they often have slightly higher tannins, body, and fruit, which allows them to stand up to more substantial dishes (e.g., grilled foods, pizza, etc.). Our Wild Boar Rosés epitomize this style, and in particular, the 2017 is showing exceptionally well, as its initially youthful fruit aromatics have evolved in fabulous ways.
