This is a a Rosé from the Çalkarası grape made in the western part of Turkey.  Very pale pink in color, clear and bright.  The nose has watermelons and strawberries.  On the palate, this is refreshing and tasty.  Strawberries and tart cherries with slight acidity.  Good finish.  Nothing really distinguishable about the grape varietal in this format, but a very good, solid rose.  Nice energy, it probably should be drunk in the next year or so to enjoy that aspect as well although it should drink longer.  This will match with a wide variety of foods.  It ould work well at brunch with Menemen.
