Our Alba Rosa was the first "blush wine" to be produced in New Jersey back in 1984. We used the Marechal Foch grape (simply called Foch here) because when it is lightly pressed and fermented cool, it makes a wine with a delicious strawberry / raspberry character. Over twenty years later, we still make it the same way, except that we now blend the Foch with Cayuga White (a Pinot Blanc hybrid from Cornell University,) which contributes a delicious "peachy" flavor. Finished semi-dry, this wine is perfect just for sipping, or is great with a wide variety of foods if you prefer your wines not-too-dry.
“Not just another pretty wine!” A delicious depth of berry flavor accented by hints of peach and grapefruit and finished with a soft touch of sweetness. Alba Rosa goes well with a variety of foods. Enjoy with light meats, fruit dishes and salads, or simply sipped chilled with someone special.
