Grenache


2004 Muga - Rioja Rosado
This is Aris' pairing for Parchment Pouch Salmon from 700 Drayton Restaurant at the Mansion on Forsyth Park
Producer: Muga Country: Spain Region: Rioja
Major Grape: Grenache
Grape Blend: 60% Garnacha + 30% Viura + 10% Tempranillo
Appellation: Rioja
The rosés of Spain display both a charmingly festive and serious nature seldom found in other rosés. Muga is one of Spain's best wineries and world renowned for sensational red Rioja wines. This rosé is a lovely, refreshing sipping wine yet has all the prerequisites to compliment this elegant dish. Delightfully fruity flavors are enhanced with complex spicy, earthy notes. Crisp and dry on the palate but not competing with its lively, fruity personality.

This was a lovely match for he salmon which was simply cooked with only the fennel, ginger and orange for complimentary flavors. If more rosés were made like this Muga I'm sure rosé wines would find a place at more tables and restaurant wine lists.

Pinot Noir


2005 Etude - Pinot Noir Rosé
This is Aris' pairing for Tuna Canapé from Chelsea's Wine Bar & Eatery
Producer: Etude Country: USA State: CA Region: Napa Valley
Major Grape: Pinot Noir
Appellation: Carneros
This may be the best rosé on the west coast! I usually get in trouble when I make bold, opinionated statements but I just can't help myself when I get really excited about a wine. Why is it that good? Well for starters Etude makes one of California's best Pinot Noirs and the grapes for this rosé come from the their estate vineyard located on the western edge of the Carneros appellation on rocky, well drained slopes. This rosé was destined to be a rosé from the beginning and was made with the same dedication to quality as Etude's Pinot Noir. The color is a bright salmon and the nose and palate are filled with strawberry, rose petal and pomegranate. The match with the tuna was near perfection, providing red wine flavors with white wine refreshment.
