Musar have a different perspective on age. Their vineyards are very old and their wines live for decades - they are still selling vintages from the 1950s. So although they say that this rosé is made from 'young' vines, it turns out that the Cinsault which makes up 80% of the blend is from a vineyard at least 30 years old. The quality of fruit you get from old vines makes this a superior, fuller-bodied rosé in Musar's distinctive, spicy style, released ready to drink.
