Wine of the Week: Travessia 2014 Pinot Noir Rosé

When the calendar tells me that it’s  Spring,, I get ready for rosé . There’s something so hopeful about dry pink wine that pairs with light and delicious seasonal dishes that signals the arrival of longer days and warmer weather (unless you live in Boston).

 

Travessia Rose of Pinot Noir

Travessia Urban Winery has been making one of my favorite rosé wines since tthe very early days of this blog. We discovered Travessia at our first Coastal Wine Trail event, became wine club members shortly after, and have been fans ever since.

The 2014 Rosé of Pinot Noir may just be my favorite Travessia rosé yet. It’s dry, drier than past years, with a beautiful rosy pink color and a crispness that will go perfect with the bounty of seafood from the nearby coast. Light notes of strawberry and watermelon mix with a hint of minerality. Wines like this are the perfect example of how well wines go with food from the same region in which they were grown. The grapes for this wine are from nearby Dartmouth.

We capped off our visit with another delicious meal at Cork. I definitely recommend the Shrimp Ajillo!

    We are going down this upcoming weekend to get our Wine Club wines. I’m thinking a case of the rosé. I am super excited to read your post knowing the 2014 is just (if not better) than years past.
