Tasting Notes: Watermelon, strawberry and white flowers on the nose. Fresh fruit, cranberry and spring herbs. Hints of orange peel, flint and spring pea flowers. Glowing with refreshing bright red fruits, cranberry, wild strawberry, watermelon, rhubarb and plum. The wine has a surprising richness, making this more of a serious sipper, with medium bodied and delicious mouthwatering long finish. Slight candied cherry with wild herbs, watercress, heather and blooming wild spring pea flowers. Gorgeous rose to be paired with grilled salmon, pork or fried chicken. Would do well with red snapper or as a starter with crab dip or tomato bruschetta and anchovies.
