I first fell in love with Pansy! (yes, the exclamation mark is important in its pronunciation) years ago, and while the wine has changed over the vintages, it remains a solid rosé for summer sipping. The malbec and merlot grapes have imparted a dark pink colour to the wine, and it smells of the candy of my youth, Starburst to be exact, somewhere between strawberry and watermelon. Also a hint of bubble gum. Despite the sweet aroma, this wine is very dry (4 g/l). It tastes of ripe strawberries and is a bit floral. The aftertaste has a hint of citrus. Look for this seasonal offering each May.
