A very crisp, very elegant, very restrained rosé. Gentle hints of red berries, floral notes and a lovely zesty crispness on a refreshing, light body. Only a few hours of skin contact maceration to obtain this 50/50 blend that possesses superb finesse, plenty of aromas and a lovely bright pink colour.
