This lighter Rosé displays fresh, vibrant cranberry and strawberry aromas on the nose. The palate is delicately balanced, smooth and refreshing.
The grapes for this lighter alcohol wine are predominantly Pinot Noir with Arneis and Merlot. The fruit was carefully selected from early ripening varieties (predominantly Pinot Noir) and vineyard sites that express ripe flavours and acidity at lower sugar levels than standard Villa Maria wines. The fruit is gently handled and cool fermented in the winery to ensure the wine has bright aromatics and fresh fruit flavours, without compromising the palate weight, texture and length. The alcohol level was achieved naturally from the fermentation of the grape sugars, without intervention.
Food Pairing: Served chilled, this is an excellent aperitif wine and perfect with summer salads, charcuterie and most seafood dishes.
