Tasting Notes

This wine shows a pale peach hue with vibrant luminosity. The wine opens with complex aromas of stone fruit, watermelon, lychee, crushed oyster shells and a delicate hint of fresh floral. The palate is clean and focused with long, lean acid and savory minerality.

Food Pairing Notes

Like a fine, dry white wine, Malene Rosé can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods such as linguine with chevre, herbs and tomatoes, asparagus risotto with lemon, chicken quesadillas or Baja fish tacos – just to name a few. Its layered versatility allows for easy entertaining in environments both casual and formal.

Vineyard Notes

Malene is uniquely dedicated to producing rosé with a Provençal flair and the warm, long growing season on the Central Coast is about as Provençal as it gets in California. We make our wines sustainably and simply with an uncompromising commitment to quality and in partnership with farmers who share in our values. We source the Grenache and Mourvèdre grapes that make up the majority of the blend for our Malene Rosé from two of the top vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley for these varieties – Zaca Mesa & Camp 4. Zaca Mesa was one of the first vineyards planted in the Santa Ynez Valley in 1973 – a relatively warm and elevated site with early ripening and rocky soils that are ideal for Grenache. Camp 4 is planted on sandy loam soil that are ideal for a naturally vigorous variety such as Mourvèdre and benefits from cool afternoon breezes that blow east from the Pacific through the Santa Rita Hills. Sustainably produced at our SIP (Sustainability in Practice)-Certified winery and honestly delicious, Malene is rosé vibes only.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Malene Rosé is incredibly expressive on the nose, leaping from the glass with intense notes of peach, white grapefruit, and peony. On the palate, the wine is bright and lively with juicy notes of strawberry and nectarine that lead to a crisp and refreshing finish that evokes a fresh ocean breeze.

Food Pairing Notes

Like a fine, dry white wine, Malene Rosé can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods such as mushroom quiche, rosemary flatbread with blue cheese, pork and noodles stir-fry, halibut with onions and tomatoes, or even a lovely tapenade. It’s impeccably balanced texture and crisp acidity make the wine an equally elegant match for refined dishes possessing complex flavors.

Vineyard Notes

The warm, long growing season on the Central Coast is about as Provençal as it gets in California. We source Grenache and Cinsault from two vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley, Camp 4 and Zaca Mesa. Camp 4, in particular, has become one of the top sources for Rhones in the Santa Ynez Valley. Both vineyards are planted on sandy loam soils, ideal for these naturally vigorous varietals, and experience cool afternoon breezes blowing east from the Pacific through the Santa Rita Hills. We also source some of our fruit from the Vista Serrano Vineyard in Paso Robles, which is predominantly influenced by the cooling effect of the Templeton Gap. While Paso Robles is a relatively warm AVA, this area, located adjacent to a gap in the coastal range, has the greatest maritime influence and is well suited to growing traditional Provencal rose grape varieties. Additionally, we source a small amount from Mistral Vineyard in Monterey County and our Vermentino comes from Keyhole Ranch in the Russian River Valley, farmed by Seghesio Family Vineyards.
