Rose is a pinkish variety, light and crisp. Saint Clair Rose wines are the result of crushing red grapes early on, so that they are not able to impart their colour (or much tannin) to the final wine. With flavours of wild strawberry and cream with hints of raspberry Rose is elegant, fresh and appealing.
Salmon Pink Aromas of red berries and cherry along with freshly cut strawberries leap from the glass. A fresh and appealing wine with flavours of cherry and redcurrant, underlying strawberries and cream tones. Fresh acidity is balanced by a round yet elegant palate that leads to a lingering finish.
Perfect for drinking immediately, this Rose will be at its best over the next 1 to 2 years.
