55% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 17% Chardonnay, 4.5% Pinot Gris, 1.5% Riesling
Shiny bright new copper color. Beautiful aromas of ripe cranberries, lovely creamy yeast notes, a tiny hint of toasted oak and classic crushed stones fill the glass. The mouth-feel is elegant and stately with a seamless lovely yeasty texture from the beginning to the long finish. There is great balance and play between the fresh, lush fruit, elegant acidity, and minerality. The wine is generous with great structure and very sophisticated. It is satisfying to drink on its own but screams to be paired with food. This rosé is on a whole new level!
