Producer Note: The grapes used to make our rosé come from selected parcels where the vines are on average 20 years old. The yields are low, which explains the intense concentration and distinct expression of each varietal in this wine. The presence of Mourvedre gives this wine its strong character, balance and complexity. An intense fruit and floral nose make this an attractive rosé. The palate is rounded and full with fruity aromas of peach and pomegranate, followed by delicate spice notes and a pleasant freshness created by acidic balance.
Tempier Rosé is beautifully balanced and shows crunchy yet opulent fruit bolstered by a refreshing shock of blood orange crispiness. It really sits well above all other Bandol and Provence Rose. It works really well with grilled seafood, antipasti platters and of course, bouillabaisse. We all think of rose for Summer, but this wine is so good it’s perfect in winter with the right food. - Ian Cook, FWC
