Serefina

Serefina Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The Serefina stone is thought to be the symbol of unconditional love. A blend of Viognier and Tannat, our SEREFINA is a refreshingly crisp rosé with a nose of tropical fruits, citrus, and strawberry. This medium-bodied dry wine is a superb compliment to shellfishes, pastas, and salads. Best when chilled, but can be enjoyed at room temperature.

Varietal Definition
Viognier:
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.
Tannat:
Deeply colored and tannic minor grape grown in the Pyrenees region of France. One of four grapes whose wine is blended to make the full-bodied red wine known as "Madiran". The others are Bouchy, Courbu and Pinenc.
