This wine smells like a Riesling and a pinot gris mixed together. It tastes like cherry and blood orange, a high amount of minerals, and an aftertaste of spearmint and strawberries. Very good rose wine!

Winemaker's Notes:

Bonny Doon writes of this wonderful rosé: "We continue our efforts to perfect this gris du coeur by insinuating a not insignificant dollop of white wine - principally Grenache Blanc - into our typical blend of Southern Rhône red varieties, a protocol initiated with the 2003 vintage. Though not a technique practiced widely in Vin Gris’ spiritual homeland of Provençe, we find the addition of rich white wine adds some incremental gravity and seriousness without jeopardizing the final blend’s vivacious deliciousness - a quality critical in the perfect apéritif. Fresh and bright with a pale pink color and a soupcon of blue rose. Hints of wild strawberry, white cherry, apple blossom, and the barest whiff of spearmint. Palate is quite dry and zesty with pale red fruits, blood orange, citrus and a lean yet supple finish.
