Wine Review: This coral colored wine from DAOU opens with a pink grapefruit and blood orange bouquet with hints of strawberry, peach, and chalk. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, round, and clean. The flavor profile is a cantaloupe and mild pink grapefruit with notes of strawberry and peach pit. We also detected hints of gentle minerality, white pepper and ginger mixed in as well. We would serve this wine slightly chilled with melon, mozzarella, and prosciutto skewers on warm summer day or with stuffed sole. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Inspired by the renowned rosé wines of Provence, France, our 2020 DAOU Discovery Collection Rosé remains faithful to its origins. This wine is remarkably fragrant, offering generous aromas of fresh peach, Bartlett pear and nectarine, with subtle notes of hyacinth, apricot and crushed rose petals. The palate is delightfully silky, underlying a clean, fresh crispness delivering enticing flavors of mango, Crenshaw melon, lemon chiffon and tangerine. Secondary layers reveal hints of sweet cherry and vanilla with orange peel accents. A luxurious and lasting finish leaves traces of apple pie, strawberry. and kiwi.
