Domaine Mayrac Esprit Nature Rose
Domaine Mayrac have improved on their No SO2 Rose with this Esprit Natur Rose. Still sulphite free and fully organic of course, but this wine is made from 100% Cabernet Franc as opposed to Cinsault in their No SO2 wine.
It's fruity and fresh with a bit more mouthfeel and a longer finish...
