Wine Review: This orangish pink colored wine opens with a strawberry and watermelon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused light tangerine with hints of lime and strawberry. The finish is dry and refreshing. This pleasant Rose would pair nicely with grilled shrimp. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A soft fruity and fresh rosé with an appealing soft rose color and violet hints. Its bouquet develops intense aromas of red fruit, aniseed and candied violet notes. The palate is smooth, round and well balanced with a lingering finish.

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.
