General Comments

Rose petal candy floss pink in colour. It has a crisp, fresh nose of yellow plums and fresh strawberries with hints of candy floss leading into musk, red peppercorns and stewed cinnamon prunes on the palate.

Food Pairing Notes

The perfect summertime aperitif with lots of ice. Easy drinking summer salad wine, a fresh Caprese salad comes to mind. Also strawberries with a hint of ground black pepper would be a perfect match.
