Vin Rosé Fine Wine Jelly
(Garfield Estates Vineyard & Winery)

Vin Rosé wines are produced with varied wine making techniques, each one giving results with distinct qualities. The production of Rosé wines can be described in general terms as a process that begins as in red wines and continues as in white wines. The normal technique is to take red berried grapes, crush them, and allow the juice to stay in contact with the skins for some length of time. Once the juice picks up some red color from the skins, it is drained off. From that point on, the production of a Rosé follows the white wine process, with a cool fermentation and a short maturation period. Vin Rosé Fine Wine Jelly is made with the Vin Rosé Wine of Garfield Estates Vineyard and Winery, Palisade, Colorado. Garfield Estates owner Jeff Carr describes the wine:  "This is a dry European-style Rosé exhibiting the crisp refreshing fruitiness you expect in a classic Provencal-style Rosé." All of the wine's characteristics are retained in the wine jelly that is made with three ingredients--wine, minimal sugar, and pectin.

Use in making marinades, sauces, and glazes for veal, chicken, turkey, and light fish; serve as a condiment with grilled chicken, light fish, and sushi; pairs well with patés and on crackers with the delicate flavors and textures of soft cheeses such as Brie and Camembert; serve with desserts and over ice cream.
