A tidbit about the grape(s)/wine style
"Since its first vintage, the Blushing Bear Rosé has been inspired by the Bandol region of the south of France. Our current release, the 2019 Blushing Bear, captures the aromas and flavors of grapefruit, guava, sweet hints of melon and honey with a dry, crisp minerality throughout. This is a mouthwatering wine with a bright, refreshing finish. Bring on summer! Sourced exclusively from Walla Walla Valley vineyards, hand-picked grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed to capture perfumed aromatics and delicate flavors. Afterwards, the juice was fermented, then aged in stainless steel for five months to deliver a clean, fresh style."
