Macerated on the skins for 18 hours, this coral dry rosé showcases  strawberry and tropical fruit notes, a playful wisp of cotton candy and a squeeze of lemon. These flavours dance across the palate, creating a playful mouthfeel, refreshing acidity, and a lasting finish. A terrific, versatile food pairing wine or to enjoy  on its own.  This is a wine you build a relationship with.

Radish and Grapefruit Salad

Crisp and light, this will remind you of summer, even though it can be prepared any time of year. The singular mix of flavors and textures creates a uniquely appealing salad. The original instructions advise: “Do not add the dressing until just before serving or else the salad will give off too much liquid.” from Food and Drink, Spring 2004

Ingredients
  

Salad

  • 4 small grapefruit
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup black olives pitted
  • 12 radishes thinly sliced

Dressing

Instructions
 

  • Thinly slice the radishes and green onions.
  • Peel the grapefruit and cut into sections over a bowl, to catch the juice (this should give you enough juice–or more than enough–to make the dressing). Place the grapefruit sections, green onions, olives and radishes in a salad bowl. Chill until ready to serve.
  • Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Just before serving, pour dressing over the salad and gently toss together. Serves four. Best eaten right away.
