WINE REVIEW: 2017 Chaddsford Dry Rosé, Saignée à Trois, Pennsylvania ($25)
by Andrew Chalk
Appearance: Sunset orange;
Nose: Rose petals, raspberry, burnt match heads;
Palate: Crisp dry light wine. Good body. Red fruit.
An unusual blend of 42% pinot noir, 41% merlot, and 17% cabernet sauvignon from an unusual place - Pennsylvania, which has taken to turning out some enjoyable wines in recent years. Chaddsford Winery is one of the leaders. A chewy, balanced wine ideal with pork dishes or salmon in these increasingly warm days.
