Grapelive: Wine of the Day May 22, 2017

2016 Joyce Vineyards, Rose “Turbidity Current” Monterey County.
Russell Joyce’s latest set of wines are highly entertaining and charming with good fruit, balance and energy, especially good are his Pinot Noirs, his vivid Riesling and this wildly fresh Rose. The 2016 Rose is made from Gamay Noir and Grenache and with light maceration giving a bright and vibrant pink/ruby hue in the glass with lifted detail and succulent zesty juiciness. The core is citrus driven with zingy grapefruit, sour cherry, strawberry, fleshy peach and watermelon along with hints of mineral, snappy herb and rosewater. Light and crisp, but with open flavors that are brisk and lingering, this Joyce vineyards Turbidity Current Rose is wonderfully fun and will be a summer day treat.
