This Provence has good depth of flavour, richness and the finish has harmony and persistence. Bursting with delicate aromas of wild strawberries and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of rose petal. On the palate, the wine shows immediate soft berry-fruit flavours that are immediately appealing. It suits ape´ritif drinking, but is also a superb accompaniment to grilled seafood, creamy risotto and pasta dishes. A crisp, dry finish with exceptional length rounds off this wine. An outstanding southern French rosé.
Texture is the key. This is pale, dry and frisky; there’s pretty much no fruit sweetness whatsoever; but the abundant texture here gives you a lot to hold onto. It’s aggressively dry and aggressively savoury, in a good way. Tasted: Oct 2020; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $32; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2023; Rated: 91 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
The wine is a blend of Grenache (70%) and Cinsault (30%) and gives a pretty light pink to orange in the glass. The nose is generous and floral with wild strawberry, clotted cream and faint citrus notes. The palate has an initial softness with candied apple and a continuation of the strawberry fruits on the nose before a tautness of rhubarb and red cherry gives structure and texture to the mid palate. Citrus flows through to finish with good length and is joined by a final embellishment of red fruits.
