Pale intensity of onion skin color. Medium intensity nose, has a bit aged nose. The aromas have light pickled squash, red apple paste (like tree top apple juice), light mineral, dry fruits, dry peach, raspberry, strawberry. Medium alcohol, medium acidity. Not well balanced with the too fruity style. SY rating: 16/20 (Dubious between old world Pinot Noir Rose and Cote du Rhone Rose. The answer is Pinot Noir, unfortunately I got a wrong answer.)
