|Julia Kelada rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
I am a red wine drinker, simple.....but all of a sudden, out of the blue, maybe a sunny sky and a feeling of joke de vive...I crave rosé! I don't want sickly, sweet pop...I want a wine that's light yet has impact... Let me introduce Tavel!
It wasn't a particularly hot day, but a gathering of the hockey fans drinking beer in my living room drove me to indulge in a rosé...and if I may be blunt, it went straight to my head, hence there may be typos in my review, and I shan't excuse myself as it was.......Delicious!
I'm to we'll versed in rosé reviews, that i i am goign to review from the heart instead of from my bank of limited knowledge!
The colour is darker than most of the other rosés on the shelf.
On the nose there are the expected strawberries then red currants to calm the sweetness down with notes of orange peel and thyme then a quick punch of caramel......interesting!
On the mouth.....strawberries, raspberries , red currants, then a mineral undertone before a floral bouquet of rose and lavender stepped forward. This is a full bodied wine and the delicious end spicey notes ere quite delicious with nutmeg and pepper. This wine is dry and full bodied yet fruity and refreshing, what a wondrous discovery!
