Made with Grenache grapes planted over 40 years ago by Russians fleeing the war in their country (click here to read more about the history of the Valle de Guadalupe), this rosé is dry, similar to the wines from Provence region of France. Imagine yourself, wine glass in hand, as you soak up the sun in Saint-Tropez or Cannes… order yourself some of this rosé stat so you can have your own virtual vacay!
Abundant aromas of sweet strawberries and tart raspberries danced the tango with fresh rain and sea air as I swirled my glass of this rosé.
Fruit flavors of white and yellow peaches, ripe strawberries, and raspberries were pleasantly followed by notes of zwieback crackers and minerally salinity, and finally culminated into a zippy white ginger finish.
