Very pale orange and pink. Lively red fruit aromas of strawberry and watermelon with a hint of minerality. Dry, crisp on the palate and very persistent. Fruitiness balanced with a touch of mouth-watering acidity and plenty of verve. A full-bodied wine which is a perfect spring and summer sipper. It has just enough seriousness to pair with the right foods.
Riviera Rosé is crafted from primarily Grenache, and blended with Counoise, Syrah and Mourvèdre sourced from select vineyards including Margerum's Estate Vineyard in the Los Olivos District. The other vineyards are Portico Hills, Kingsley, Camp 4, Zaca Mesa, Lieff Ranch, and Riata Oaks.
From the Winery:
Color: Ballet slipper pink with just a slight orange hue.
Aroma: Very pronounced creamy aromas of strawberry and watermelon with floral notes of verbena, passion fruit, and orange blossom. Not shy at all right after bottling.
Palate: Dry, crisp and dancing on the palate. Just right fruitiness and candy cane flavors that include subtle banana, strawberry, and sweet tarts. The fruitiness is balanced with a touch of mouthwatering acidity and plenty of verve.
