Touraine Rosé 2015 - Domaine a Deux

Unusual but highly interesting Rosé from Touraine! Made from a blend of Gamay, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it develops aromas of white flowers and citrus. The palate is quite rich and finishes on a long candy taste.  A very nice rosé to drink on its own and that would also be a good match for a grilled fish or shellfish.
