We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Winemaker Notes:

Delicate watermelon hue with pale rose edges in the glass. Bright strawberry and cream and cranberry fruit with a complex rose water, candied melon and lemon basil notes. The attack is fresh and reminiscent of the crunch of pomegranates and cranberries. The mid-palate is creamy and generous with notes of ripe watermelon and pink grapefruit zest with just a hint of juniper spice that adds nobility. A line of ripe citrusy acidity drives the palate to a long vinous finish that lets all the near-saline minerality of the terroir shine through.

Blend: 71% Grenache, 29% Shiraz.

Wine EnthusiastThis rosé blend of Grenache and Shiraz comes across as slightly herbal and grassy, with hints of thyme and eucalypt over ripe strawberry fruit. It's medium in body, with mouthwatering citrus notes on the finish.
