Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful soft red, similar to freshly steeped rose tea.

Smell:

Deliciously heady aromas of wild strawberry, watermelon, and candied cherry are laid overtop blood orange blossom, dried rose petals, and a touch of white tea.

Taste:

A well balanced and inviting blend of juicy berries, exotic fruit, and sweet floral aromas. Red raspberry and fresh cherry mingle with lychee, blood orange, and fresh rose petals.

Finish:

Slightly mouth drying, with a lovely bite of acidity and fruity flavors that linger and linger.

Pairing:

A Chinese chicken salad, with grilled chicken, snow peas, and toasted sesame seeds.
