Without knowing what grapes were used , I instantly knew it must be made with a high percentage of Riesling. Smells like Riesling, tastes like Riesling. If you don’t like Riesling, you won’t like this rosé. I … LOVE Riesling , so….. ???????? Medium salmon colour, hibiscus, petroleum, Lemon lime On the nose . Slightly off dry but balanced beautifully with mouthwatering acidity. Medium plus body . Citrus , maybe a hint of watermelon jolly rancher in the finish . Absolutely delicious. Was lovely on its own, with charcuterie, and would pair with a wide range of food.
