This is a rather rosé colour, I would say, quite pale or orange would be perhaps more of an adequate description. It is generous fruit on the nose, there is plenty of citrus there. Pink grape and lots of red fruity notes, like red berries and a mild spiciness. Palate is quite mellow and rounded. It is still quite ripe. I mean if I think about the rosé style, it is quite ripe and round with a rounded acidity. I feel a little hint of oak as well. And some creamy notes, like fresh butter, vanilla. And quite long lush and rounded finish. It is certainly not really a style I am very familiar with, because a rosé with this power is a bit unusual. However, I am not saying I don’t like it, because I think it has a lot of flavour. It has length, in this warmth in this anxious, ripe and richer fruity style.
