Rosé, schmozé I hear you cry, what makes this one so special? What makes this stand out from the crowd, other than its seriously delicious red fruit profile and oh so delicate touch, is the addition of the secret ingredient, Rolle a.k.a. Vermentino. When added to the Syrah and Grenache, this adds a little oomph in the form of a tremendous mouth feel making it round, unctuous, and elegant, separating this from many in the market today, and that’s all apart from the fact it comes from what’s considered to be the best terroir in Provence, Sainte Victoire, which allows the grapes to ripen beautifully.


Tasting Notes

We are all guilty of Rosé racism. All too often we relegate it to the realms of the summer sipper, glugging it down for refreshment in the scorching conditions of the English heatwave. But, by doing so, we forget how phenomenally versatile this thirst quencher is. Try a glass with anchovies wrapped in sage leaves and fried until crisp in garlic butter. For mains coat fat, juicy prawns in harissa and char-grill then serve with couscous laden with herbs. But, for a serious guilty treat, indulge in a chilled glass with a panko-bread-crumbed chicken burger piled up with salad, cucumber, spring onions and lavishly dolloped with wasabi mayo.
