Winemaker's Notes:

Unlike some of its Borsao stablemates, this bottling isn't gushing with fruit in the nose, but it has something more: balance. Black cherries and blueberries coincide with gentle vanilla and toast, and mineral and rock elements finish the wine, along with a whisp of citrusy crispness. Drink now or in the next several years.

About Borsao:

Founded in 1958 in the town of Borja, called Borsao in the 4th century B.C., this winery represents what can be done with Garnacha, a grape that is not well appreciated by the Spanish press. Through meticulous selection, work in the fields and at reception time in the winery, modern winemaking produces this highly fruity wine. One of the best examples of the region known as "The Garnacha land of Spain", the lower part of the Ebro River.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Rose has a salmon-pink color and a citrusy nose, with a dominant aroma of strawberries. A full-bodied, fresh taste opens out onto hints of fresh fruit. Well-balanced, round and crisp.

Domaniers Rose will be a delicious companion to delicatessen meats, poultry, white meats, fish, Provencal and Asian dishes.
