2017 Mimi’s Rosé
2017 Mimi’s Rosé
We are pleased to present the inaugural vintage of Seavey’s Rosé, a tribute to Mary “Mimi” Seavey and her incredible vitality and generous spirit. Entirely estate grown, Mimi’s Rosé is a refreshing blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, sourced from just a few special rows of our vineyard blocks. Winemaker Jim Duane’s dedication to quality and structure is exemplified in his intentional creation of this clean, crisp wine. Mimi would have loved this wine! While devoted to building Seavey’s signature Cabernet Sauvignon alongside her husband, Bill, she was known to enjoy lighter wines with a touch of panache, and this wine’s vivid, youthful fruit and bright energy hit the mark.
Salmon-pink and crystalline, a beautifully energetic bouquet wafts from the glass with aromas of strawberry, cherry, grapefruit zest, rose petals and fresh pear. On the palate, this wine is crisp and refreshing with enticing texture and a long, dancing finish.
This versatile wine will shine with food. Serve it chilled with seafood or sushi, or with salads—for example, salad niçoise, panzanella or even a salad of watermelon, goat cheese and arugula. It could also be paired with heartier dishes such as cioppino, bouillabaisse, Portuguese lamb stew, or stuffed tomatoes and couscous.
Special rows of our grapes were selected for this wine early in the growing season by Jim Duane. In late August, ahead of the rest of harvest, these grapes were then picked from the vines in the cool of the early morning to preserve their freshness. Gentle whole-cluster pressing was used followed by cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
