The 2013 Iowa Marquette Rosé won a Bronze Medal at the recent Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in Rochester, NY. It is a dry, full bodied rosé with bright cherry, strawberry, citrus, and peach on the nose and strawberry, raspberry, and cherry on the palate. This rosé was made from Marquette grapes grown in our Mahaska County vineyards.
The 2013 Iowa Marquette Rosé is a versatile wine in that it has enough body that it will pair with light foods like spicy Asian Stir Fries or Mexican food but also with light grilled meats. This wine should be served chilled and it will make a nice addition to a summer meal composed of grilled meats.
Iowa Marquette Rosé is priced at $15.00 per 750 ml bottle, plus tax.
