This Week: Locations Wine, 2015 Rosé Grenache
About Locations Wine:
Locations Wine was founded by winemaker Dave Phinney, which he created based on the simple concept of making the best possible wines from any given location or country. However, this "simple concept" ended up being a fairly difficult action to implement. In order to follow through with his concept, Dave needed to secure grapes from around the world for use in his wines. So, he decided to travel the world, meeting vineyard owners along the way. Today, Dave has achieved his concept of making the best possible wines from locations all around the world, which each wine paying special homage to its country of origin.
In the glass, an appearance of Himalayan salt opens with a nose of gardenias and early harvested stone fruit. A fresh entry leads to a honeysuckle mousse with hints of peaches and cantaloupe encompassing a dry minerality. The finish is memorable with a slight brininess reminiscent of the Himalayan sea salt hue.
At the girl & the fig we’d recommend pairing Locations Wine, 2015 Rosé Grenache with our Cider-Braised Pork Shoulder (stone-ground polenta, charred cabbage, pickled mustard seed), or our Wild Flounder Meunière (Yukon potato purée, spinach, lemon-caper brown butter).
At home try it with seafood or red meats.
