Wine Review: This Shirley Temple colored Rose from Tavel is very good. It opens with an attractive orange peel and pink lemonade bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a gentle fine mineral influenced watermelon and Maraschino cherry blend with hints of strawberry. The finish is dry and refreshing and shows nice length for a Rose. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with Nova Scotia steamed mussels. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Its deep aromatic complexity and its very special balance are the hallmarks of a great wine. Slightly lighter in hue than previous years, its robe is a dazzling ruby color. The attack on notes of spice opens onto a cocktail of red fruit and white fruit. Gorgeous generous mouth where the wide diversity of aromas of fruits combines with a structure that defines the balance of this wine. Delicious with lamb curry, poultry in cream sauce, bouillabaisse, paella, Asian cuisine & goat cheeses.
