Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Bordeaux, France
What with the yearly press surrounding en primeur and the expensive reds of Bordeaux, it's easy to forget that 10% of the region's output is rosé wine! Inspired by (and from the owners of) Haut-Brion, this has a mid-pink hue thanks to short maceration and direct pressing. Forget the light and sometimes watery style of Provence, this has oodles of tangy red fruit, ripe citrus, lychee and rose and a hint of salinity. This stood out as a firm favourite at a recent tasting of our entire rosé range with our customers. Great with ginger and salmon fishcakes.
