Natalie's Score: 90/100

This Tavel is produced from the well-known family-owned winery, Family Perrin. Rich and bone-dry with bright acidity, it is a 50% Cinsault, 25% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre rosé wine blend. Look for fresh raspberry, strawberry, dried herb and spicy flavours on the palate. Pair with grilled salmon steaks. MINE: From a well-known producer famous for their Tavel wines. Pretty salmon colour in the glass, the rosé is bone dry, fragrant with pink florals, spice and fresh herb aromas on the nose. Bright and zesty with cherry, raspberry, pink grapefruit zest and light savoury herb flavours on the palate. Vibrant on the finish and easy to enjoy. Pair with smoked fish, but would equally go well with grilled pork chops. OTHER: Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Rosé in the fall is a great idea!! This is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Mouvèdre, with aromas of ripe strawberry, watermelon candy and some herbaceous hints. Bright acidity on the palate with fresh, ripe fruit and berry notes and a zippy citrus finish. Enjoy with salmon, turkey, or roast pork tenderloin. OTHER: Tavel produces some of the driest, richest rosés in the world. Ideal summer sippers (they are from the sunny South of France, after all), they're also very food-friendly, with the structure and depth for seafood salads, chicken or grilled ribs (Vintages Panel, updated).

Tavel food pairings: grilled salmon steak, shellfish, fresh fruit, veggies, pasta primavera.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced from the well-known family-owned winery, Family Perrin. Rich and bone-dry with bright acidity, it is a 50% Cinsault, 25% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre rosé wine blend. A great value rosé under $20. look for ripe, bright red berry, spice and citrus zest flavours on this Tavel from the Rhône. Produced by bleeding (saignee method). Unlike direct pressing, the whole berries are placed in the tank and are crushed under their own weight. After 12 hours of maceration, the juice is extracted and fermentation begins after settling. The wine juice is cool-fermented up to 20 days, racked and rest in stainless-steel tanks until they are filtered and bottled in February. - Community Wine Reviews
