Fulkerson Winery News :
2014 Rosé Wine Release
Rosé Consumption on the Rise
Dundee, NY- Fulkerson Winery is pleased to announce our 2014 Rosé was bottled in February and was released March 1st. While this wine will not be for sale in our tasting room, you will be able to find it popping up in liquor stores all across the state of New York. This dry style Rosé with 0.2% Residual Sugar is a blend of Pinot Noir (67%) and Dornfelder (33%) giving it a bright acidity and fresh fruit tones.
Younger wine drinkers are looking for a more adventurous wine to consume, and with its reasonable pricing and attractive color, this dry and fruit driven Rosé style wine is growing even more popular in the United States, with consumption at about 13% of Rosé wines worldwide making the U.S. is the second largest Rosé drinking country next to France according to Provence Wine USA.
Rosé wines across the world are growing in popularity especially with the quality of Rosé wine on the rise, and have a reputation of being released in late winter, early spring. Rosé style wines end up less tannic than a full bodied red, but have more weight and complexity than a white.
Owner and Wine Maker Sayre Fulkerson states, “We wanted to use nice fruit forward red varietals. The goal was to make an exciting Rosé to have with any meal.” This Rosé will be the first of its kind at Fulkerson Winery to be available only in the wholesale market.
Sommelier Thomas Pastuszak (NoMad Restaurant, NYC) reviews the 2012 Lemberger and states:
Excellent feedback on this Lemberger, especially that within the wine community, Lemberger from Europe can be an exciting & less-explored category (and very few examples are made in the United States). Tasters noted bright, aromatic red fruit tones in the wine, with generous minerality & pepper-spice character that lived-up to the varietal characteristics expected of the grape; additionally, oak use was restrained and did not overshadow the fruit & mineral tones of the wine (very much appreciated by the tasters). Packaging was said to be clean, classic & streamlined as well.
