2024 GRAND STAR WINNER - LONE STAR INT'L WINE COMP - Latest vintage of best selling rose from cinsault grapes grown by Lilli of the Vine Vineyard in Lamesa Texas.

The 2023 Castanet Rosé greets the senses with an inviting bouquet of aromas. The nose is characterized by an alluring blend of fresh strawberries, zesty Meyer lemon, and bright orange zest. These primary notes are complemented by hints of ripe raspberries, juicy apricots, and exotic guava, creating a complex and fragrant profile. Subtle undertones of mango and delicate rose water add an extra layer of sophistication to the aroma.

On the palate, this rosé offers a refreshing and harmonious experience. The initial flavors of tangy lemons and sweet strawberries are prominent, providing a lively and crisp taste. The mid-palate is balanced with a touch of residual sugar that enhances the fruitiness without overwhelming the natural acidity.
