Tasting Notes
The Amani Poppy Blush Rose 2011 displays a beautiful cranberry red colouring. The first nose is a show of sweet vanilla expression fused with sun dried cranberries. The second nose has the tangy crispness of lime that flows into a spearmint- aniseed impression. Palate entrance is subtle then opens-up to a sweet raspberry taste with a tangy lime covering around the berry flavours. The delicate balance between the crisp element and the sweet, gives this wine a coverall inviting appeal.
