TASTING NOTE: Crafted from Pinot Noir and the aromatic white grape Arneis, which is native to Piedmont in Italy, this rosé is the latest addition to the Doctors' range. The blend makes for a very interesting and fun wine: It's floral and pretty with notes of strawberry and raspberry with herbs and sage accented by blood orange and grapefruit, making for a pleasingly complex experience. Juicy and fresh with a very drinkable and lively character, this starts ripe and round before a rush of citrusy acidity takes over. Lovely. Perfect for sipping, or pair with chicken salad or grilled seafood. (Vintages panel, May 2017) Price $ 19.95
