Clean and fresh, with bursts of bright red fruit flavors (cherries, strawberries, and watermelon), balanced acidity, a touch of minerality and a long, dry and refreshing finish.
Hand-picked by the finest wine makers the South of France has to offer, Hampton Water Wine is made up of the perfect blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. What that all means is this wine is the perfect companion for any occasion. To be enjoyed with finger food, salads or seafood.

COMMENTARY: Over the last decade, the number of rosés has grown by leaps and bounds. While many of them are sound and pleasant wines, only a handful rise above the crowd. The 2018 Hampton is lovely and substantive. TASTING NOTES: This wine satisfies. Its attractive aromas and flavors of dried earth and wild red fruit stay fresh and balanced on the palate. Pair it with lightly-dressed salads with sliced, grilled chicken. (Tasted: January 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

This rosé, made from 60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah, smells light and fresh right off the bat, with mediumintense notes of wild strawberries, white peach and just a touch of white chocolate. The medium-weight palate offers enough acidity to lift the ripe peach, melon and red currant flavors, with a slight melon rind pithiness on the close. It’s well balanced and easy to like.
