The color is pale, luminous, with a salmon-like tinge. On the nose, the aromas are of ripe pears, raspberries, and pomegranates. To the mouth, the flavors are fresh and delicate, and linger on with a smooth and fruity finish.
Showing a nice juxtaposition of New World fresh fruitiness and traditional rusticity, the pleasing 2016 Delas Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé offers a balanced look at pink wines. Not too fruity and not too acidic, this wine provides a perfect passage for new wine drinkers to enjoy easy food and wine pairings. Try it with a basic roast chicken baked its natural juices with a sprinkle of sea salt and a few grinds of whole black peppercorns.
