SPRING GATE ROSé AND BLUSH WINES
People love Rosé and Blush wines from light, delicate, and dry, to medium-bodied and sweet. Here at Spring Gate, we endeavor to please!
There are a number of methods to make these Rosé and Blush wines, from a dry saignee, which infers the bleeding of the grape without pressing it, to white wine with a blending in of some red wine - into sparkling or still.
Indian Summer Catawba
This Blush features notes of sweet peach and strawberry. This American grape was considered in the 19th Century in Europe to be superior to the Champagne’s of France or the Rieslings of Germany. We think its peach and strawberry tastes make this a great sweet wine for picnics and casual events, and it is a perfect beginner’s wine for people new to the world of wine. Blended with another American grape, Niagara, we think many will like this all-American experience. ABV 11.5%, RS 10%

Crushing the grapes provides instant juice, a process independent of actually pressing the grapes. This saignee of the grapes is the base of a number of styles for winemaking, including the creation of Rosés.
