Firstly a big thanks to Curtis Family Vineyards who sent this sample bottle over this week. Once I found out it’s made from Grenache, it went straight on the tasting.
Here’s some fun facts for you about the Grenache grape variety:
- Typical flavours of Grenache include strawberries, raspberries, black cherries and cinnamon
- It can also be called: Cannonau (Italy), Garnacha (Spain), Garnatxa (Spain), Grenache Noir, Alicante
- Grenache Day was started by the Grenache Symposium in 2010 and is celebrated every year on the 3rd Friday in September
Now let’s get to this loveable bottle of rosé, here are our notes:
It’s a peachy diamond colour in the glass. The nose is full of strawberries and grapefruit with a wonderful enticing freshness to it. While in the mouth it made me picture a raspberry tart with a zesting of citrus. Fresh, juicy and darn smashable.
This wine was given to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
