Petoskey Farms 2018 “First Crush” Sweet Rose
Probably the most tropical-smelling rose you'll find, this blend of Frontenac Gris (85%) and Frontenac Noir (15%) oozes with scents of pineapple, mango and peach with background notes of strawberry preserves.
That tropical fruit salad quality continues on a palate that is surprisingly balanced given the sweetness here (though the last vintage drank slightly drier). Sweet strawberry, pineapple, and mango flavors are accented by just a little cherry skin on the finish.
Dry rose is all the rage, of course, but sweet rose will always have its fans. I wonder what they think of the $25 price tag though.
