Review: Chateau Morrisette’s Rose Chambourcin

Chateau Morrisette’s newest wine, Rose Chambourcin, is not yet available for purchase, but when it is, I know I’ll be one of the first in line to get a bottle of my own.
Rose Chambourcin falls under the category of a Rose.
It is a wine made from red grapes but bled off within the first few hours of fermentation, giving it a beautiful pink color and light flavor.
When first smelling the wine, it has quite a sweet aroma, reminiscent of another Chateau Morrisette wine, Sweet Mountain
Laurel.
This new edition hits your mouth with a punch of dry fruitiness, ringing with notes of
grapefruit and a bit of strawberry.
But unlike most reds, the flavor seems to dissipate after a sip, without leaving a harsh aftertaste.
Although Rose Chambourcin is fruit-forward, there is still some acidity behind it, which is common in many reds.
This is the perfect choice for someone who likes the dry acidity of red wine but is looking for a slightly fruiter beverage.
