Produced in a traditional Provence style, the 2018 Rosé is stylistically superb. This vibrant wine is an elegant, salmon-pink colored Rosé that sparkles in the light and conjures images of summer twilight's. Aromas of strawberry, watermelon, yellow peach and bright citrus are followed by light notes of oak and nutty marzipan that entice the senses. The wine showcases crisp flavors of nectarine, apricot, and fresh strawberry that draw you in. This charming, bright and fun wine is completely dry yet simultaneously silky smooth with subtle spritz, clean minerality and bright acidity that lead into a long lingering finish. Enjoy Now!
