Made in a very popular style, this is a fruit forward, creamy and lush rose. It shows red berry aromas, a soft. suave palate, and fresh red berriy and cranberry notes. Finishes very long. This would be the perfect wine for wedding cake. A blend of 95% free-run Chardonnay and 5% barrel aged Pinot Noir from estate vineyards.
Gruet Cuvee Danielle Grand Rosé Vintage 2012 is rich scarlet in color with a fine mousse texture and a bevy of small bubbles. On the nose, notes of cassis on the nose mingle with a hint of pear from the Chardonnay. A rich and complex mid palate with notes of black cherry and a touch of toast and creaminess is complimented by green apple notes and a long, crisp finish.
