Raka Rosé 2008

Appearance: Bright clear in colour with an orange tinge
The aromas are complex. Rich flavours of prunes and crushed strawberry, complimented by hints of honey. The same characters carries through on the palate with a refreshing crisp, sweetish finish.

Served well chilled, this wine is well suited to any seafood, pasta and cold meats. Also delightful on its own!
