Tasting Notes

This refreshing dry rosé features fresh strawberry aromas and then flavors of pink grapefruit and tart raspberry with citrus. Dry, crisp and clean, this is a perennial Finger Lakes favorite for locals and tourists alike.

 

Sheldrake Point Winery is named for the prominent point of land on which it sits, located on the western shore of Cayuga Lake. Operated as an orchard and dairy farm from 1850 to the mid-1980s, the 155-acre lakeshore farm lay fallow until 1997 when a small group of wine enthusiasts organized the purchase of the land and founded the winery. Today, Sheldrake Point Winery continues the agricultural tradition with 60 acres of vineyard planted to 10 vitis vinifera varieties, which are used to make approximately 8,500 cases of estate grown, produced, and bottled table and ice wines.

 

Cabernet Franc grapes for this wine were harvested at the end of September 2020. After an overnight cold soak the wine underwent a 15-day fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It was bottled in late January 2021.
