By using only the best fruit and first press, Mary McAuley of Ripe Life Wines set out to create a crowd-pleasing dry rosé with a refreshing body, excellent balance, subtle intensity, impressive complexity, and, most importantly, one that pairs perfectly with seafood. Using 100% single-vineyard Syrah, they uncovered exactly that. The Clambake Limited Edition Rosé [$16] boasts flavors of wild strawberry, Bing cherry, orange zest, and citrus. Its herbal notes and long, white pepper finish bring out the nuanced sweetness and flavors of clawmeat, steamers, fresh corn, and everything in-between. At a very reasonable $16.00 a bottle, this brosé is a perfect holiday gift to be sipped or swallowed year-round.
