The 2019 Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare opens with typical rose notes: wild strawberry, peach, guava, and rhubarb and a very discreet scent of white pepper. The wine has a wonderful creaminess and length on the palate in virtue due to the practice of leaving the wine post-fermentation on its lees to great effect.

Light raspberry, delicate cotton candy, brisk melon and a hint of citrus show on the nose of this pale rosé. There’s a great zip and tense texture to the sip, where ash and talc flavors meet with rounded red plum, strawberry and watermelon, all sliced by strong acidity. Best Buy.
