Wine AdvocateSourced from the estate's sand and silt soils, the 2016 Ventoux Rose may be pale in hue but it's no shrinking violet. It pumps out bold aromas of citrus and stone fruit plus hints of red berries. Six months on the lees gives it a rich texture but it never seems heavy, finishing with refreshing acid zip.
