Casa Smith Vino Rosé 2018 750mlWinemaker Notes : The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!
Moulin de la Roque Les Hauts de Vallon Bandol Rosé 2019 750mlWinery Notes: Soil: Red sand loaded with limestone pebbles Winemaking: Manual harvest is completely destalked to avoid harsh tannins.

Following alcoholic fermentation, there is a lengthy vatting period of 20 to 30 days to allow the young wine to truly come into its own. Tasting Notes: Clear ruby pink color. Wide nose filled with powerful, exotic fruits and spices. The taste is wide, long, rich, delicate and tender; fruity with good persistence. 50% Mourvedre, 40% Grenache, 10% Cinsault.
