A complex nose of chamomile, watermelon and rose water. Hints of dried pineapple, nectarine and spice cut through a background of tangerine and white flowers. Silky and fresh, with ethereal texture carrying macerated citrus and stone fruits. Exceedingly drinkable.

"The 2018 Matthews Rose is another beautiful new wine by the talented Aryn Morell. The wine opens with a bright bouquet of red cherry, ripe kiwi, guava and suggestions of wild mushroom. The palate reveals a kiss of sweetness and a wonderfully soft texture. Red currant jelly, ripe strawberry and cran-orange flavors round out this awesome new Rose’. Drink 2019-2025."
