There are some great Rose wines like La Vielle for a ridiculous price. $5.99 in the US. Can we be so lucky!?
I like it a lot. Picked up a magnum for $12.95 in Austin because the owner of the wine shop recommended it. Nose is lightly fruity with a little bit of minerality and maybe some citrus. Tastes like Kiwi on the front of the mouth some acidity through the middle finishing clean and dry with the taste of stone or chalk. Much better than average wine. I am interested in trying the red and rose now!
