Cuvee Mythique Shiraz/Grenache Rose

    My Review: Nothing candied or cloying about this rosè; pretty pale salmon in colour, it's light and crisp on the palate with fresh strawberries, tea, and flowers on the nose. A perfect summer's afternoon sipping wine. Score: 85/100

        Remy Pannier Rosè 2010

        Loire, France

          My Review: Early summer fruits abound in the glass: strawberry, raspberry, cherry. There's a light, sweetness on the finish that compliments the tart fruit, and the acidic kick leaves the palate refreshed. Score: 85/100

                My Review: This is a very reasonably priced bottle of good rosè. It's everything you want in a rosè. A lovely pale salmon colour with subtle aromas of lemon and rhubarb follwed by a slight earthiness; balanced and not too complicated. Score: 87/100
