Description

‘Pretty in Pink’ colour with a summer-fresh aroma of strawberry, watermelon, crabapple, red currant, cherry and rose petal. The medium frame is supported by refreshing acidity. Flavours of red berry, currant and red cherry fill the mouth. Refreshing red fruits and red berry tea notes linger on the finish of this extra-dry rosé. Fabulous aperitif or summer sipper.

Enjoy with tapas, gourmet pizzas, pissaladiere, feta cheese, Greek salads, crab cakes, poached salmon, pan-fried panko crusted trout, spiced shrimp skewers, charcuterie plate, pork tenderloin with rhubarb sauce.
