Damn solid, but $40 is a bit of a stretch. Come on Kermit, don't take all the gold

Having tasted so many rosés leading up to tasting this for the first time makes it's influence massively apparent. All of my favourite roses past seem to have aromas and are structured in its image. None of them feel as effortlessly balanced. A benchmark no doubt.

One of our favorite Rosés. Now that the 15 has settled in the bottle for year, time to enjoy. It's simply just better a year down the road. On the nose, bright, lean fruits of; strawberries, cherries, tangerine, watermelon. Sea spray, limestone & fresh pink florals. On the palate, the body had a presence of gluey. Fresh, bright, lean fruits of; strawberries, cherries, tangerine. Watermelon, grainy minerals, limestone, perfect level of chalkiness (big but not overpowering the fruit), saline, pink flowers, beautiful, round, soft acidity and a round polish finish 50-50 fruit and earth. Photos of our trip there in April 2016. Estate vines, large oak vat cellar and road signage. Added, are those beautiful Mourvedre grapes being harvested.

Pretty restrained, or maybe we just drank it too fast...

You can drink a case of tempier rose over a couple months and every bottle will be better than the last. It's impossible to be anything but thrilled with this wine

Undeniable symbiosis between richness and vibrancy. Still has a bit of effervescence, but more open than the last couple vintages at this stage in its life. Stone fruit and saline/mineral on the nose, middle weighted on the palate and a pleasant bitter note on the finish. Maybe not the best rose I've ever had, but the overall balance is rarely matched in a rose wine.
