NV BOE Haywater Cove Rosé
Haywater Cove Rosé, the newest member of the BOE family of wines, is a fresh, fruit-driven, light-bodied rosé that is the perfect refreshment for your warm summer days and nights. It's made from Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes from North Fork vineyards and is a tribute to the beautiful surrounds of Peconic Bay and the North Fork of Long Island. Bouyant flavors of nectarines, strawberry, mandarin, and pineapple, with a zestiness that is still smooth. Reminiscent of Provencal rosés, it’s a North Fork expression of everyone's favorite sea-side wine. Enjoy it cold, sip on it with your fresh veggies and salads, or young sheep or goats’ milk cheeses. Use in cocktails, as a lunchtime sipper or evening aperitif, or enjoy with fresh berries and fruits for an on-the-spot light sangria.
All of the grapes were picked slightly early for the purpose of rosé production. Subsequently, the grapes were destemmed, crushed, chilled, and cold-soaked for eight hours. The juice was pressed and passed into a stainless-steel tank for fermentation, and then the wine rested on its lees without stirring for four weeks in the tank. Finally, the wine was stabilized, rested in the tank, and then bottled in the Spring of 2018.
65% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot
