Long Shadows Julias Dazzle Rose
From Allen Shoup comes Julia’s Dazzle Rosé. Produced and bottled independent of Long Shadows, Allen asked Gilles Nicault to make a dry rosé as a favor to him some years ago to satisfy his own love for the wine and a desire to share it with family and friends. Dazzle was an instant hit. The wine quickly affirmed Allen’s long-held belief that Americans would one day develop an affinity for this food-friendly wine, particularly perfect on a warm summer afternoon.
Vintage after vintage Allen’s guests asked him to make the wine more readily available outside of his own dinner parties, so in 2012, Allen asked Gilles to set aside a special block of grapes at The Benches, to allow for a modest uptick in the wine’s production.
Gilles selected a block of Pinot Grigio and gave it extended time on the vine to develop a bright tint through slow fermentation, then added 2% Sangiovese to the blend for color. Named after Allen’s granddaughter, Julia's Dazzle is light pink in color and offers aromas of strawberry and orange peel. It is a dry style but with sweet fruit flavors and clean sharp acidity creating a light and refreshing finish.
Tasting Notes: This Rosé has a bright, eye-catching orange-strawberry color and is dry in style with sweet fruit flavors in the mouth. Serve it chilled with light dishes or as an aperitif. It contains 2% Sangiovese
