Virginia Pour House Notes:
The winemaker’s gift of a little more time in fermentation gives this Rose the ability to shed some of that stereotypical fruit forward strawberry character and dry out a bit to add a more tannin and zest with subtle aromas of strawberry and fresh cut wood. The palate is caressed with smooth balanced strawberry, watermelon, and a touch of spice. The effervescent and tingly finish show more tannin structure and proves to be drier than the earlier release providing better balance overall.
