Winemaker’s Notes
This beautiful rosé evokes Hamptons sunsets, tinged with pink and copper. Aromas of ripe local fruit–cantaloupe, strawberry and peach–fill the glass. The mouth-feel is alive and textured with vibrant, tropical flavors like honeydew melon. Bright acidity provides balance and the finish is long and layered like dusk over our vineyard.  $23.99
