Review by Eric Tansey, CSW,Sommelier
The Zum Martin Sepp Rosé wine is a light bodied, dry rosé with moderate aromas of lemon zest, strawberry cream and crushed seashell.
On the front of the palate, subtle sour cherry, lemon, and crushed seashell characteristics are refreshingly clear and prevalent. On the mid palate the Zum Martin Sepp Rosé has underripe strawberry, much like the top portion of a strawberry near the stem.
Very refreshing and very easy to drink. Perfect for the beach and perfect for summer baseball games and hotdogs. The bottle is one liter with a beer cap, making the Zum Martin Sepp Rosé festive and different. It is definitely a conversation piece that will be enjoyed by all. Cheers!

What is a Dry Rosé?
Dry rosé is red wine that has only sat with its grape skins for a short period of time. Most grapes, red and white, are actually white on the inside. The wine obtains its color by allowing the juice to sit with the skins during what is called the “maceration period”. Rosé can be made with any red wine grape varietals–Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, etc. These are lighter bodied, dry wines, with subtle red fruit taste characteristics, very little tannin, and less acidity than most white wines. They are a lot of fun during the hot summer months, as they are typically served chilled, and pair so well with most summer time food. Don’t be afraid of the pink. Cheers! Eric Tansey, CSW, Sommelier
