Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, with just the lightest salmon tint possible. Very zesty aromatic strawberry, wet grass and melon with hints of lemon and lime. Slightly creamy, dry and dusty mouthfeel, light to medium body and a 150-grit texture. Ripe cherry, strawberry and watermelon flavors. Wonderful crisp acidity and a medium-length slightly bitter tasting fruity finish. WOW, this mimics much more expensive rosé. Flavors were not over the top, it was fresh, crisp and refreshing and it wasn’t grocery store rosé sweet!!! Easy drinking dry and fruity on the palate and at only $10.00 it’s a fantastic value rosé from southern France.
