Grenache/Cinsault/Syrah/Rolle Blend * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Provence, France
Hailing from the cooler parts of Provence, where the oak and olive tree forests shelter the vines at higher altitude, allowing the grapes to reach full maturity without excessive sugar levels. Harvest takes place in the wee small hours to avoid oxidation and to preserve all of the fresh characeteristics of the vineyard and varieties. Charming and mineral, with aromas redolent of fennel, anise and purple flowers. A zippy, friendly style of rose, superb sipped sat on a shady terrace - just as good on its own as it is with a bowl of anchovies or black olives. The ideal tonic to summer's hot weather.
