Château La Gordonne - Côtes de Provence
The lightest of our rosés, the Château La Gordonne is a wine made in the classic Provence style.
Crystalline & palest-pink in the glass, this wine has a subtle nose of rose petals & dried red berries.
This is a wine that is crisp & articulate with a fine minerality that is softer in style...not exaggerated or astringent.
Enjoy this wine with Bill Smith's fresh seafood selections or all of the summer's finest lighter fare.
Bielsa - Garnacha Rosado - Spain
From the lightest to the darkest, the
Bielsa, from Campo de Borja, boasts a ruby blush & bold flavors of
cherry & earth which make this a great summer exception for red wine lovers.
This old-vine Garnacha is grown organically in well-draining soils, which intensifies the concentration of the grapes, lending the Bielsa it's strikingly deep hue.
This wine pairs beautifully with the Grilled Shoulder Tenderloin & the Carolina Sampler.
Champteloup - Rosé D'Anjou - France
If what your mouth is watering for is a classic off-dry summer pink wine, the Champteloup will fulfill that hankering.
100% Grolleau, this wine has ripe peaches on the nose, a soft roundness to it's body that features the light & summery strawberry & raspberry notes.
With just a touch of residual sweetness, this wine is perfect with the cold fried chicken Picnic Plate & the bold flavors of the Beet Salad.
