TASTING NOTE: Made with certified organically grown Pinot Noir with a splash (7%) of organic Viognier, this is a vibrant, elegant rosé brimming with notions of wild strawberry, orange zest, fresh apricot and spring flowers. The finish is tangy and luxuriously long. Savour with roast ham, black olive tapenade, turkey-and-spinach sandwiches on whole grain bread, or grilled duck breast with a fresh apricot-orange chutney.
