TASTING NOTES

Produced in a traditional Provence style, the 2020 Rosé is stylistically superb. This wine is vibrant, elegant, and an absolute delight to drink.  Aromas of watermelon, yellow peach, and bright lime are followed by light notes of an English rose and coconut cream. The wine showcases crisp flavors of strawberry, nectarine, raspberry, blood orange, and banana 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 leads into a long lingering finish. The crew here at Starfield thinks this is hands down our best Rosé. Enjoy Now!
