Steely pink color. Aromas and flavors of ripe watermelon, strawberry shortcake, white peach, ginger-lemonade, and fresh radish with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, refreshing, medium-long finish that exhibits notes of pink peppercorns, white tea, and wild strawberry with no oak flavor. A joyful and refreshing Languedoc Rosé that screams summer.

Vin de Pays Rosé are rosé wines that are designated as a Vin de Pays or country wine from one of about 50 different departments (territories) in France. One of the most popular of these is Vin de Pays d'Oc from the Languedoc-Roussilon area in southern France, while Vin de Pays Vignobles de France represents the entire winemaking territories of France.

There are several red varieties that can be used to make a Vin de Pays Rosé, which are produced with minimal skin contact, as with most rosés. These varieties include Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

These rosés are light to medium-bodied and generally are dry or off-dry with moderate tannins and an earthy finish. Pair with simple bistro food such as salads or roast chicken.
