Winemakers Tasting Notes – (Source Website)

Pale pink in color, this rose offers fresh, delicate aromas of red fruits (currant, cherry), and citrus (lemon). On the palate, it shows a beautiful balance between ripeness and acidity, with notes of fresh fruit.

The process used to create this wine is the Saignée method. Vinification in stainless steel tanks until January, then the wine is then bottled after fining.

This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential.
