The 2022 Syrah Rosé is stylistically superb. This wine is vibrant, elegant, and an absolute delight to drink. Aromas of strawberry, nectarine, and berries & cream are joined by subtle notes of lilies, plumeria, and vanilla custard. The wine showcases crisp flavors of ripe plum, kumquat, dried blood orange, and salted watermelon 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 eliciting memories of ruby red grapefruit. The crew here at Starfield thinks this is hands down our best Rosé. Enjoy Now!
