The Rosé wines from Provence in southern France are really sumptuous, and this example is no exception. Made by renowned winemaker Ropiteau Fréres taking grapes from some of the best vineyards in this sun-drenched corner of France.
This wine is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah with each varietal vinified separately. The juice was kept on the skins for a minimal period, extracting just enough colour, resulting in a wine of pale salmon pink.
The nose and palate are redolent of summer fruit - strawberry and redcurrant, with hints of white flowers. This wine is best enjoyed with fresh seafood, a light salad or charcuterie. However it is equally pleasant just sipping on its own.
From the same source as a few other wines we have recently listed, a failed online wine seller offering personalised front labels, this has only a back label - but as we have said on many occasions, you don't drink the label!
Prices of Provence Rosé are varied, but we reckon this wine has a comparative value of around £8. At Binendwines it is just £5.95.
