Wine Review: This light pink colored Rose made from mostly Syrah opens with a mild maraschino cherry bouquet with hints of faint wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused maraschino cherry with hints of almond and clementine. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Rose from Toscana shows very nice finesse and would pair nicely with a delicate Dover sole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Alie 2016 is a refined and elegant wine characterised by its pale rose colour and subtle peach highlights. Fruity and intense with immediate freshness on the nose gained in ripe fruity, the aromatic fruits carry from the nose to the palate, augmented by a textured streak of minerality, with citrus, Marasca cherries and white melon fruit notes. A characterful rose with a long, fresh, persistent finish. Serving suggestions Alie partners beautifully with smoked fish, particularly salmon, as well as with prosciutto, lighter meats, poultry and fish.
