Old Westminster Take It Easy Rose Piquette
In 2020, we’re drinking Piquette. Old Westminster Winery explains Piquette as “a vinous beverage produced by hydrating pressed grapes with water for a second fermentation. Because freshly pressed grapes are chock-full of sugar and yeast, a second spontaneous fermentation takes off when water is added to the grapes.” The result is a spritzy, lower alcohol, supremely thirst quenching tipple evoking descriptions like “crushable” & “gulpable.” Unfined & unfiltered, this Rosé is a blend of the local Chambourcin variety with both white & red piquettes. Enjoy tart cherry, strawberry, and gooseberry, with a distinct saline edge.
