Margerum Wine Company, 2017 Margerum 'Riviera' Rosé

"Tight, bright and refreshing on the nose, this very pale Grenache-based rosé shows strawberry and wet river stones on the nose. There's an immense grip to the sip, with pithy lime rinds framing the tightly wound strawberry flavors that carry far into the finish. Beware the ease with which it vanishes."
