Wine Review: This pale pink colored wine opens with a very faint strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, approachable and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty mild watermelon with hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and refreshing. While this wine is not overly complex, it is quite enjoyable. It would be perfect to quaff at the beach or poolside with friends on a hot summer day. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This very expressive Rose is pure Gamay from the Beaujolais area of southern Burgundy. The Bellenos Rosé of Gamay Noir has vibrant red raspberry and cherry notes and the mineral inflection that is typical of the southern, Austral region of Burgundy.
