Fact Sheet

A rendezvous with friends is all the more delicious a pleasure over a bottle of luscious chilled dry rosé, hence the name of our “ Rendezvous Rosé . ”  Created by bleeding half of the “pink” juice off of red Carignane grapes a full three days after crushing them, it is fermented cold like a white wine to retain every delicious drop of crisp strawberry fruitiness.   
 
 

Winemaker Notes:

Light cranberry color, juicy strawberry-watermelon fruit aromas, nice mineral, nice lift of spring flowers and fresh zest from cara-cara oranges, tangy vanilla crème fraîche on strawberry shortcake!  Refreshingly crisp and dry, mouth-watering actually.  Great with almost any food, from sushi to salmon to BBQ!
