Silvery amber color. Creamy, earthy aromas and flavors of strawberry rose keffir, yeasty cake dough, vanilla fondant, and pickled melon rind with a soft, bright, dryish medium body and a smooth, medium-length finish with notes of cherry skin, pear, and melon with fine, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A balance of fruit and earth make this Rosé a natural choice for artisan cheeses.

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.
