Tasting notes

A blend of three flavourful varieties; Muscat de Frontignan, Grenache and Mourvedre.  Camissa presents an aroma of rose petals and fresh red fruits, hints of Turkish Delight and lemon on the palate with perfectly balanced acidity. Camissa may initially appear sweet but it finishes completely dry.  The weight, texture, balance and complexity on show are quite marvellous. This is fabulous rosé with a unique style making it hard to compare.
