The color is is tinted bronze and moderately opaque. The wine is very lively on the nose, floral and fruity with roses, strawberries and sweet cherries. Strawberries dominate on the palate, with a tiny hint of vanilla, then citrus acidity on the mid-palate through to the finish. Great acids allow it to be refreshing and fruity at the same time. Drink with fried chicken. Recommended (88). DH
