About The Wine
Rose wines are usually made in one of three ways: Maceration, where the juice is left in contact with the skins, extracting some colour; Saignee, where a portion of juice is removed from a vat which will eventually ferment to make a red wine, with the removed juice then fermented like a white wine; and Blending, where a red and white wine are blended together.
The Alpha Box & Dice Tarot Rose is made by blending Cabernet Sauvignon skins (left over from a red-wine ferment) and Chardonnay juice, quite an unconventional method for making a rose. Yet the result is a lovely wine with delicate fruit, spice and floral flavours and immense approachability.
