Fragile is Orin Swift’s rosé from the Department 66 winery in Maury, France. Inspired by the venerable wines of the southern Mediterranean, it is made utilizing traditional methods. Sourced from sixty – one-hundred-year-old vines, they were able to capture supreme concentration and layered flavor components.
In the glass, the wine shimmers with a pale hue of translucent garnet. Soft aromatics of dried rose petals prevail and invite a tasting. With bright hints of strawberry and ripe stone fruits, the wine leads to an opulent mid-palate. Finishing with purpose, it is long and riddled with layers of texture and grace.
Grenache with small percentages of Syrah, and Carignan
