Wine Summary

This wine screams summer with notes of strawberries, cream, and white hibiscus. The subtle cream notes of this wine were developed via sur lee aging on the fine yeast lees for an extended timeframe. While still crisp as we think a Rose should be, this vintage also has added layers of complexity not typically found in a single varietal Rose.
