Cherry, strawberry, cream, raspberry, watermelon, vanilla and slate. Great acidity and minerality.

Better than at the CS tasting in April. Light strawberries and cherries on the nose. Medium bright flavors of strawberries, raspberries, and cherries. Spice and crisp on the finish with good texture.

2012 vintage. No nose, cherries and strawberries on the palate with citrus and heat on the finish.

Never. Too. Much. Rosé.
With harvest in full-swing (and nearly all fruit in, a record!), Saintsbury's classic vin gris of pinot noir's bright fruit & crisp texture taste just like the brighter skies ahead.
