Pursued by Bear 'Blushing Bear' Rose 2022

10 units available online.
Product description

Inspired by the classic Bandol roses of southern France, the 2022 Blushing Bear is a beautiful salmon pink color, offering fragrant aromas of honeysuckle, wild strawberries, and grapefruit. Refreshing and flavorful with a soft, lush entry and bright notes of Bartlett pear, guava, and crisp apple. Mouthwatering acidity and a lively finish make this the perfect wine to enjoy at twilight on a warm summer evening.

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 and aged in stainless steel for five months to deliver a clean, fresh style.

This stainless-steel fermented and aged rosé is the perfect accompaniment to a Saint-Tropez tan. Lemon, wild-strawberry and rosemary aromas are fresh and inviting. Tangy tangerine and sweet Fuji apple flavors nimbly pirouette on a crisp texture driven by brisk acidity. This bear is just right.

The 2022 Blushing Bear Rose, a blend of 73% Mourvedre and 27% Grenache, opens to white and yellow flowers, citrus blossom and wild cherries, with hints of yellow apple and citrus aromas on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, succulent and food-friendly, culminating with a crisp, mineral-laced finish.
