Description: Deep pomegranate in colour with a highly intense nose.

Positives: Lots of flavour going on here featuring strawberry, sour cherry, lavender on the nose, candy apple and pomegranate. Medium+ body, good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: A little heat from the 14% alcohol.

Interesting Things: One of my favourite rosés.

Drink now and although it’s fine to drink on its own, I would pair it with food such as pork chops with a spicy edge.
