Very charming pale rosé color. The wine displays lots of fresh fruit aromas such as strawberry and watermelon. The palate is focused and very well balanced with again some strawberry and ripe red fruit notes. The finish is quite pleasing and long with a little spiciness and freshness to it.

"Pink blush. This 50/50 blend of Syrah and Grenache has a light strawberry scented perfume and a crisp, fresh and richly flavored palate of cherry skin. A well balanced, refreshing wine that will please those like their rosé dry and mineral-like. Outstanding value!" - i-winereview (July 2016), 88+ pts
