Tasting Notes: Citrus, Strawberry, Blood Orange, Fennel
Jolie-Laide is a one-man operation based in a Sebastopol winery where winemaker Scott Schultz makes only 500 cases of wine a year under his own label. Valdiguié ~ better known in California as Napa Gamay ~ is a vibrant varietal indigenous to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France.
The Jolie-Laide Valdiguie Rose, Rosewood Vineyard, 2019 is a beautiful rich rosé that is well structured, full bodied and feels almost like an orange wine. Meaty with red fruit, strawberries, blood orange, grapefruit and fennel flavors. Great with spicy food like shrimp and grits.
