Rosé futures are way up these days, as more and more wine lovers enjoy them year-round. Syrah and grenache from stony vineyards in the southern Rhône Valley blend into a pomegranate-hued, savoury rosé. You’ll find wild strawberry and herbal notes, with fresh acidity, a grippy texture, and a dry finish for charcuterie or sausage stew.
