Winemaker's Notes

A soft and rather pale colored rosé with raspberry and copper colored undertones. The gradation is a more silvery colored shade. The wine is bright, crystal clear and unclouded. Visually, it presents a good concentration of matter. The first impression is rather reserved if not discrete. However, the beautiful elegance of this wine is still evident. With only a little time to breathe, the wine quickly opens up with hints of red fruits, such as redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries, and hints of freesia and rose which bring a delicate side to the whole. Finally, we find aromas of garrigue, liquorice and myrtle which bring character and freshness to the wine. Palate - From the attack on the palate, we instantly find the elegant and delicate qualities from its aroma. Additionally, we find fruity flavors, in particular flavors of redcurrants, which give the wine its tangy side. The flavors linger for an average amount of time on the palate and are carried by the freshness of its acidity and the flavours of English sweets which we find on the finish. A pleasantly strong wine.

This wine is ideal from aperitif to dessert. This rosé wine will match with italian food, tomatoes, hot and spicy dishes.
