The winemaker for Quivira has a wife that truly loves dry, Provencal style Roses so I'm sure you can understand why Hugh makes it a point to make the very best he can! The grapes for this Rose are all organically grown and grown specifically to make the less than 2,000 cases they make a year. A blend of Grenache, Counoise, Syrah, Mourvedre and Petit Syrah. The color always looks a little misleading, this is a way more delicate wine than the color might suggest. Graceful stone fruits and citrus with just a whisper of tart summer berry and rhubarb. Great backyard, porch or poolside pink wine!
