Aromas: Tart smells of tangerines, rose hips and sour cherries mingled with aromas of jasmine flowers and hints of bubblegum.
Flavors: Bright acidity with Rainer cherries, raspberries, strawberries and mouth puckering rose hips swirled into a finish with a kiss of sweetness. This kosher rosé, a blend of Cinsault and Grenache, is exceptionally light, making it a good match with many types of summer foods.
Food pairing suggestions: Strawberry salad with a basil-lime vinaigrette, seared scallops, or a picnic on a warm, sunny day.
