The light-bodied Big Easy Rose is pale Salmon in colour, but rich in character and elegant in composure. Produced predominantly from Cinsaut, it offers beautiful fragrance, delicate fruit and a savoury edge. Juicy citrus and dried strawberry lines the palate with and a dash of spice from the Shiraz component making for intriguing and yet uncomplicated drinking. Vibrant, fruity and almost saline, the finish is clean and lip-smackingly fresh. Beautifully dry, delicious and refined, this is classic rose that can be enjoyed with or without food.
