A sexy pink color with lively hues. The nose combines aromas of ripe blood-orange, cherry-drops and black currant cordial with fragrant sandalwood whiffs. The gorgeously weighted palate balances juicy fruit flavours with racy acidity and finishes on a pleasantly persistant, zesty note.
Serve well chilled. An excellent aperitif or picnic wine. The ideal summer salad wine. Serve with fresh, seared tuna steaks; veal limone; poached salmon; asparagus quiche; cold crayfish salad; vegetable spring rolls dipped in soy sauce; ideal with sushi and other Japanese delights.
Tried it at World Market on crunch time from a huge merger, bought a whole pallet for the wife. Love this stuff.
Great rose at a great value from South Africa. Served at parties and always a hit.
Heavier than the French and more complex than the Argentinean roses' I tasted this week. Earthyness for sure. Much more mature than I expected for being only 1 year old.
