Wine Review: This pale coral colored wine from France opens with a wet stone and mild red cherry bouquet with hints of rose petal. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, and fresh. The flavor profile is chalky minerality and tangerine blend with notes of white pepper and saline. I also detected hints of red cherry and lime. The finish is dry and pleasantly refreshing. This Rosé is food friendly and would pair well with Kerrygold cheddar cheese with Trader Joe’s pita crackers at the beach. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2023 Souleil Rosé is aromatic with notes of strawberry, orange rind, and rain-kissed stones, the wine unfolds into a refreshing, mineral-rich palate featuring white cherry, watermelon, pithy citrus, and rose petals. Its lively, acid-forward finish, reminiscent of a cool sea breeze, encourages sip after sip. Best enjoyed chilled, it pairs wonderfully with salty almonds, charcuterie, or olives, offering an authentic glimpse into France's Mediterranean region.
