The palate confirms the nose delivering a tart, subtle fruit core with generous acidity and mineral notes.

We absolutely love vibrant and well-made Provence Rosé.

This fresh Rosé is made with a traditional style blend consisting of 60% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, and 20% Grenache. This is a classic wine from the Cotes-de-Provence in southeast France. Wine has been made here for at least 2,600 years and while many styles of wines are made here Rosé accounts for more than half of the total production. 88 points out of 100.
