In the Glass
Brilliant, light pink color.
The nose is fresh with notes of bright raspberry, tart cherry and yellow cherries, wild strawberry, and subtle herbs accents.
The palate is in full accord with the nose delivering a generous fruit-driven core with vibrant acidity and faint citrus notes.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied ideal balance with a generous dose of bright acidity.
We absolutely love vibrant and well-made Provence Rosé.
We love to drink generous quantities of Rosé in the summer so we seek values. At $18 this just meets our comfort zone and besides, we really like it.
There is a richness of fruit that as atypical for Provence Rosé no doubt provided by the Syrah. This lovely and pleasing Rosé is made with a blend of 45% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, and 15% Syrah. 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. 90 points out of 100.
How to Enjoy
Serve chilled as an ideal summer aperitif or pair with smoked fish or olives.
