SAFE SHIPPING TIP: Summer weather is challenging for safely shipping natural wine. We strongly prefer a business address where an adult is available to sign on the first delivery attempt which avoids our unfiltered wines riding around on a hot truck all day.
This vintage is a beautiful rendition of a darker Rosé wine. Twinkle made its debut in 2015, after a particularly light bodied Mourvèdre inspired its creation. 2020 is just as nervy and lively as the past five vintages. This wine has become a must-have by the pool and — as many of Tracey’s North Carolina friends like to say — the go-to “porch pounder”. We always recommend drinking this beautiful wine at a chilled, white wine temperature.
Tasting Note: Aromatics and flavor profile are juicy, juicy, juicy for another crisp and refreshing vintage of Twinkle. A pretty nose of crushed strawberries and raspberries laced with a sweet and spicy fringe of cola. This is a darker Rosé wine that leads with flavor profiles of an unsweetened Agua de Jamaica (hibiscus tea), strawberries, watermelon rind, and a touch of underripe cherry. We can’t wait to pair this wine with PIZZA!!! topped with a creamy white sauce, spicy sausage, caramelized onions and mushrooms….or choose your own toppings!
