A Message from Grape Crush:
Grape Crush has teamed up with our friends at Traynor Winery to bring you our first Rosé! Made entirely from hand-harvested Gamay Noir, and pressed after 24 hours of skin contact, it is delightfully tasty oh so cool. On the nose it's all candied strawberry, plum, watermelon and rhubarb. Soft on the palate, with a touch of fennel, vibrant acid and a long fruity bone-dry finish. Good to drink when everything's cool or even when everything is terrible.
Label by Cheap Reaper

This Rose wine is hand-harvested overnight and transported to the winery the following morning. The fruit macerated for thirty-six hours before being whole-cluster pressed. The wine was settled quickly and then racked off the heavy lees to ensure a fruitier, brighter style of rose. The wine was then fermented and aged in stainless steel until it clarified naturally. We are excited to share with you this rose made from Gamay Noir and produced in a vegan way.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
- Lightly spiced dishes (e.g. Indian, Thai)
