More like a very light bodied red. Reminiscent of American Trousseau or German Trollinger. Not much varietal character to speak of. Fun to drink and nice fuel for conversation as is the case with all Hiyu/Smockshop.

Funky, blood orange, Campari. On the palate, light tannins, watermelon and grapefruit. Kumquat? Unique and delightful.

“The Return of Mike Grammer” Dinner on 7/5. - since the Valentini Cerasuolo was oxidized I’m glad this more than pulled its own weight for the Rosé flight. Very interesting palate and texture. Skin contact and a bit more orange than rosé perhaps. Pepper and watermelon along with some violets. Shouldn’t have given up my local source, as when I went back for more the next day they were sold out. Another interesting wine from Nate Ready under the Hiyu / Smockshop Band label.

Candied watermelon, blood orange rind, white pepper, haystack, game. Rounded acidity, juicy-oily texture, medium bodied, tart-fruity-slightly sweet finish.
