Wine Review: This orangish coral colored wine opens with a red peach and wet stone bouquet with hints of red cherry and clementine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and bright. The flavor profile is a chalky minerality and light peach blend with notes of red cherry and saline. I also detected a hint of strawberry and lime in the after taste. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Rose is easy to quaff. I would serve it cool on the beach on a warm day. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Once again visually stunning, and classically light in color, we have Grenache as the anchor at 70% of the blend, with Counoise and Mourvedre now back up to their normal levels. In the nose, Rhubarb, watermelon, and white peach are accented by subtle floral notes alongside hints of strawberry and just a wisp of black pepper. Super juicy and refreshing with bright, vibrant acidity and lingering red fruit that draws you back for more. As the wine warms up the Grenache-driven strawberry character becomes more prominent and is complemented by a wonderful texture that balances mid-palate richness with zippy, palate-cleansing acidity. A truly outstanding vintage for our Rosé and one that all fans of this wine will enjoy. Goes well with all classic Rosé food-wine pairings or just on its own!
