The Sancerre Rose is Salmon pink in appearance, distinct strawberry on the nose with notes of hibiscus. This then leads to a crisp refreshing acidity and lovely fruity flavours, the finish is clean and refreshing. The Sancerre Rose is made from 100% Pinot Noir where the colour just gently bleeds into the wine. This is a light, crisp and very easy drinking, great with food or just on its with great company.
This is great with spicy asian dishes, not to hot though! Or try it with some cold cuts, charcuterie and cheeses for a great lunch or great just on its own.
