Product information

Description

Sancerre Rose. Product of France.

Sancerre, in the Loire Valley, is incredibly well known for its Sauvignon Blanc wines, but Pinot Noir is also grown here and made into delicate rose wines like this Finest Sancerre Rose. Made exclusively in the family winery by Claude Fournier at their estate in Verdigny, the pale pink colour is achieved through gently pressing and cool fermentation. Crisp, refreshing and full of summer fruit flavours, this wine is a divine match for Asian crab salad.
