Grenache Rose 2016

Grenache Rose 2016

Winemaker Notes

Is it provincial pink, coral or light salmon? No matter what color you call it, your eyes are drawn to this amazing Rosé. Aromas of strawberry, watermelon and grapefruit are reflected on the palate, with added notes of tangerine. The juicy fruit and crisp acidity are juxtaposed, giving way to the sweet-tart flavors. Stunningly delicious. Enjoy throughout the seasons, from spring to fall.
