Grounded Wine Co. (Paso Robles, California) has officially announced the release of Space Age Rosé, the first Rosé to come from Founder and Winemaker Josh Phelps’ American wine label.
Created with 100% Grenache grapes sourced from “three select parcels in the Paso Robles appellation”, Space Age Rosé “showcases California terroir” in a flavor profile that is “concentrated with tastes of summer fruits –peach, strawberry, and watermelon.” After a “very gentle treatment in the cellar”, the “brilliant pale salmon” colored Space Age Rosé (14.1% ABV) emerges boasting a balance that is “is decisively fresh, with a delicate spiciness in the finish.”
“Grounded wines demonstrate how choices made by a winemaker can influence a wine, and Space Age is a prime example,” explains Josh Phelps. “From choosing only very specific grapes to our treatment in the cellar, this is a nuanced wine created with care, and I think that shows in the way it’s meant to be enjoyed – it’s an easy, summer sipping wine.”
Space Age Rosé is available now in 750ml bottles for the suggested retail price of $20 each. If you wish to get your hands on a bottle of this new Rosé, you can either track it down at select liquor stores located throughout the U.S. or purchase it directly from Grounded Wine Co.’s website. Prost!
