Medium salmon orange color. Aromas of flowerbed, dried apricot, underripe tomato, and red cherry with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium-length ripe watermelon and tomato, roasted hazelnut, and fresh lettuce finish with silky, fruit tannins. A fresh and fruity rosé balanced by elegant earthy notes.

Rosé refers to a wine made when red grapes are given slight skin contact to produce a blush, light copper, salmon or pink color. Rosés range from bone-dry to medium- sweet and are made in most major wine producing countries. Among the most famous examples are Tavel from France’s Rhone Valley, numerous offerings from Provence in southern France as well as several excellent versions from Puglia in southern Italy.

Often thought of as a summer wine – in this case, a substitute for red wine when the weather is hot – they can be enjoyed year round. The drier versions, of course, are meat for food pairings; recommended matches include chicken salad, vegetables and seafood such as tuna or salmon (especially with a rich rosé made from Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir).
