Tasting notes

The appearance is bright and clear in the glass, this rosé is translucent salmon pink in colour with aromas of strawberry jam, forest fruits, blackcurrants and blackberries. However, it is also light and elegant with minty notes, and small red fruit berries. In the mouth there is a vibrant sensation and a perfect balance between the minerality of the Chardonnay and the ripe fleshy fruit of the Pinot Noir.

Food pairing

Superb by itself as an aperitif. Perfect match for cured meats and even sushi.

Serving advice

Serve at 7ºC.
