Review date: April 4, 2017

Wine Review: This pale salmon colored wine opens with a tangerine and strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, fresh, and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tangerine with notes of strawberry and a faint hint of grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. This Rose will be a nice summer sipper to pair with shrimp cocktail by the pool. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This lovely rose displays enticing aromas of fresh-picked strawberries and summer watermelon, along with hints of lemon zest and wildflowers. On the palate, it is bright and elegant, with a refreshing underlying acidity that adds poise and definition to the vibrant fruit flavors.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
