New rose – just in time for winter! But seriously, rose seems to be a year-round drink these days, so when we were introduced to this last week, we thought it would be a great addition to the fridge, despite entering cooler weather. Dry, pale in colour and hailing from home of rose: Provence, France, this ticks all the boxes when all you crave is a simple and refreshing afternoon drink. – Ches Cook, FWC.
60% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 8% Syrah, 7% Carignan. Whole-bunch pressed and given a short skin contact to ensure a pale and bright hue as well as an intense aromatic expression. In order to preserve the natural acidity and freshness of the wine’s aromas, there is no malolactic fermentation. Ageing on fine lees in tanks for 3 months then early bottling: January/February of the year following harvest. Vintage & Vine, Importer
‘Pale pink color, intense citrus (grapefruit) and peach notes and a delicate, intense mid-palate. Ideal as an aperitif, with shellfish or crusted prawn served with citrus sauce.’ Pierre Fabre, Winemaker.
