Natalie's Score: 90/100

Dry and refreshing with notes of fleeting strawberries on a summer breeze. Lovely salmon pink colour here on this bone-dry French rosé. Finishes with strawberries and rhubarb. Pair with pate or cold chicken sandwiches beside yonder babbling brook.

Rosé food pairings: summer salads, grilled chicken breast, calamari, grilled white fish.

Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Rosé from Northern Rhone is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre. Medium-bodied and crisp with an abundance of strawberry and raspberry on the nose with secondary aromas of fresh herbs. Great Summer wine to enjoy with a variety of dishes, especially salads, chicken or grilled seafood. Tasted August, 2016.
This zesty dry French rosé is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes in the saignée method of "bleeding" or siphoning off free-run juice after a short maceration on the skins – 18 hours in this case. The free-run juice is always the most delicate fruitful and flavourful. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
