Wine Review: This coral-colored Grenache based wine from Cotes de Provence opens with a tangerine and watermelon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, soft, round and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a stony mineral, green tea, and gentle lime blend with notes of cantaloupe, watermelon and lemon zest. There is a hint of white pepper that appears at the end. The finish is dry and refreshing. This affordable Rose is food friendly and would pair well with many foods. I would serve is slightly chilled at your favorite summer shack with a grilled mahi-mahi sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made in Côtes de Provence, this wine is smooth and elegant with a lovely pale copper-salmon color in the glass. Classic aromas of citrus oil, cantaloupe, and candied watermelon lead into flavors of white peach, mango, and blossom with hints of tellicherry peppercorn. The 2021 Olema Rosé shows incredible balance between acidity and freshness and is one of our most complex vintages to date.
