The luxury American wine brand Meiomi has announced its first rosé.
Similar to Meiomi pinot noir and chardonnay, the 2016 Meiomi Rosé blends grapes from Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara counties.
The suggested retail price is $24.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
Meiomi Rosé 2016 will be available in limited supply in select locations nationwide this month.
Light salmon in color with just a kiss of pink hue, the 2016 Meiomi Rosé opens to aromas of watermelon, orange peel and hints of rose petal, the company reports. The palate offers a lush mouthfeel with flavors of stone fruit and strawberry with a cool minerality on the finish.
The pinot noir-dominant blend layers notes of strawberry and rose petal from Sonoma County fruit, bright acidity and minerality from Monterey County terroir, and flavors of stone fruit and a creaminess on the palate from grapes grown in Santa Barbara County, the company says.
It is the first Meiomi wine to be released under the direction of Melissa Stackhouse, who was appointed director of winemaking for Meiomi in 2016.
To further trial and awareness of the brand’s portfolio, Meiomi will introduce a new print and digital advertising campaign beginning in spring 2017.
