Beautiful deep pink with aromas of fresh strawberry, citrus and fragrant rose petals.  Soft acidity with mineral notes carry the palate through finish.

CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine.  It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method.  Rosé varies in both dryness/sweetness, grape varietals, and color intensity.  Many modern examples are modelled after the Provence style, which is dry and mineral forward.
