So why is French Provence rosé so popular? Maybe it’s the colour, the pale salmon pink, maybe it’s the style; the dry minerality with a lively and fresh palate coupled with notes of red berry fruit. Most rosé wines from Provence are made from two grape varieties; Cinsaut and Grenache. There are actually 13 grape varieties allowed to be grown in Côtes de Provence including Carignan, Grenache, Ugni Blanc, Cinsaut, Clairette, Mourvedre, Tibouren, Barbaroux, Calitor, Rolle and Semillon. The region stretches from Arles, south of Avignon and just east of the Rhône Valley to Cannes in the east and on the Mediterranean coast. It’s a wonderful Mediterranean climate, so much sunshine; 3000 hours- take me away now.....
And with already one pallet sold, another arrived this wee, and we have stock in the shop, so don't miss this great deal!2013 Eddystone Point Pinot Noir, Tasmania,Australia A cracking lifted Pinot Noir nose with dark red fruits.
