So pale as to have almost no pink color visible. A beguiling nose of strawberry, peach, and fresh flowers. Very expressive on the palate, with delicate but assertive fresh fruit coming on and the acid kept in check. Finishes with a small flourish, yielding a really lovely wine that is refreshing yet not insipid. Pair with seafood, especially shellfish. Highly recommended.
Summertime, and the rosé drinkin’ is easy. Very pale pink, with a light floral, plum, and oak on the nose. Drinks as one would expect of a decent rosé, with some vanilla and citrus on the palate, although the acidity strikes me as undernourished. Don’t drink chillingly cold as it does seem to tamp down the wine; let it warm up a bit first. Finishes pleasantly but not long. Not terribly striking, but does seem to compel one to reach for the phone to order Thai or Indian carryout. Recommended.
