TASTING NOTE: This 79% Grenache and 21% Viognier rosé is from vines between 9 and 11 years of age grown in sandy soils and is cold fermented in stainless steel to preserve the elegance and delicate flavours. The result is an alluring, aromatic wine with prominent strawberry and raspberry notes riding a crest of fresh, zesty acidity. Lively and delicious, it's a great value and perfect for summer dining. The vibrant acidity gives it good range with food - try it with grilled seafood, grilled chicken or summer salads. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017) Price $ 12.95
