Wine Summary

This summer sipper is highlighted with notes of honeydew, strawberry, and white tea. The subtle cream in this wine was 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.
