Classic White Wines

Three Sisters

Three Sisters

Cayuga, one of the major varieties grown at Rosedale, is paired this year with Sauvignon Blanc resulting in a bright, citrus-noted wine with faint hints of meadow grass and a sweet pear finish. This tantalizing balance of acidity and fruit shines as a cocktail as well as being perfectly suited to pair with lighter seafood dishes such as flounder or sole.

750 ml: $18.00

 

 

Elkies White

Elkie's White

Elkie’s White is a blend of our Seyval with Riesling and offers an intense, solidly structured wine which is as comfortable with meat dishes as it is with fish and poultry. Its rich color matches its depth of flavor - all balanced with a firm acidity. Mixed berry flavors and dried herbs wrap around the finish.

750 ml: $18.00

 



Simsbury Celebration

Simsbury Celebration

Our estate grown Seyval shines in this year’s Simsbury Celebration and fully expresses its Chardonnay parentage. Sage and honey notes are balanced by a background of minerality drawn from our unique soils of the Farmington River Valley. Hints of ginger and summer savory show up on the finish.

750 ml: $18.00

 

 
 

Blush Wines

Serendipity

Serendipity

Our 2016 harvest of grapes was more bountiful than anticipated and has allowed us to experiment with this serendipitous blend of two of our white varieties (Cayuga & Seyval) combined with Rosedale's FOch, a deeply colored red grape. Served chilled, its blend of citrus and fruit flavors suggest picnics and summer afternoons.

750 ml: $18.00

 

 

Classic Red Wines

Simsbury Celebration

Winter Red

Rosedae's Foch is paired this year with Zinfandel and has resulted in a unique flavor profile which features the best of both varieties. When combined, the Foch's deep berry notes and the Zinefandel's raspberry, spice and faint black pepper, flavors become reminiscent of an Italian Dolcetto or a Gamay with their subduded tannins and round structure. 

750 ml: $22.00

 

 

Farmington River Red

Farmington River Red

Our estate grown Marquette excels in this year’s offering when paired with Cabernet Sauvignon. This fruit-forward blend with its lush profile stands as an intriguing contrast to our Lou’s Red. Sensuous layers of cherry and blackberry blend into a background of herb-laced plum, sage and cedar. 

750 ml: $22.00

 

 

Lou's Red

Lou’s Red

Rosedale’s St. Croix grapes partner with Merlot and Sangiovese in this year's Lou's Red. The blend offers a broad palette of blackberry and ripe plum overlaying a background of firm tannins and a refreshing but subduded acidity. As with Marshall's dad, pictured on the bottle at age 18, there isn't a meat dish he and this wine wouldn't like. 

750 ml: $22.00



Dessert Wines

Summer Bouquet

Summer Bouquet

Red raspberries are the inspiration for this wine which matches a blend of our estate grown Meynieu, LaCross and Cayuga with the essence of red raspberry. The naturally higher acidity of these grapes balances out a smooth sweetness and sets up the perfect wine to serve with any number of desserts or even over ice on a hot summer afternoon.

750 ml: $18.00
375ml: $12.00



Boutique Wines

Sundance

Sundance

Our Sundance features Chardonnay with the added essence of peaches and apricots. A classic Chardonnay taste profile moves to a new level when crafted to showcase the sweet side of fruit and wine grapes with just 2/3 the alcohol of a regular Chardonnay. Over ice by the pool? In the hammock with a good book? Why not?

750 ml: $18.00

 

 

Summer Red

Summer Red

Blueberries and Pinot Noir…what a combination! Pinot Noir by itself is a classic. But introducing the flavor of blueberries with a touch of sweetness creates a unique experience. Add to that its low alcohol content of just 8 percent, and when slightly chilled, you have the perfect sipping companion.

750 ml: $22.00
