Reviews and Ratings

Carola Price rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Clear and light pink. Nose of cherry, strawberry and pepper. In the mouth it is super dry with some bitterness (like Tavel only lighter), hints of pepper, strawberry, peach pit and straw. Light bodied but flavour lasts and it is balanced through to the finish. Perfect for cheese and veggie platters with Mediterranean dips, fish tacos and smoked salmon toasts.

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Delicate fragrances and flavours of fresh nectarine, apricot, orange rind and lavender. Refreshing and dry, makes you dream of summer in Provence. Enjoy on its own or with savoury olive tapenade.

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Yet another top quality wine at a steal of a price, typical of this region.

Pale salmon colour, with a lovely wild strawberry, mineral, and floral nose.

Excellent!

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely rose that is crisp and refreshing. Beautiful salmon color with lots of ripe strawberry aromas coupled with flavors of sweet berry and a hint of cherry. Mouth watering finish.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I need to get more bottles of this one! Not only is the colour pretty, but the aromas and flavours of herbes de province, strawberry and a melange of peach, pear and nectarine linger on the palate. Crisp, dry, refreshing and delicious.
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I think people may buy this wine just for the pretty bottle. BUT, once they taste they will be happy they did. Off-dry, cherry aromas and flavours. Nice balance of acidity and fruit with a mouth-watering finish. Paired with a home-made pizza on my Big Green Egg on a warm May night, dinner on the deck. Perfect!
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An alluringly beautiful pale salmon rosé from southern eastern France (Provence) that offers aromas of honey dew melon, raspberries and lavender. The palate reveals a light to medium-bodied wine with refreshing acidity and flavours of melon, lemon, and savory spices.

It paired excellently with grocery store barbeque chicken and cheddar bacon potato salad. This is a food-friendly and versatile backyard patio offering.

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Alex: fresh and zesty rose here, with lemon, grapefruit peel, white pepper, thyme and wild strawberries on the nose. A little softer and fruitier on the palate than the nose would suggest, and still braced with fine acidity that sends you back for another sip. Quite long for the modest price as well. A good drop. 89pts
This seductive Provencal rosé is a light-bodied and fresh blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah grapes. Dried herbs and garrigue add savouriness to the wine. Cold roast chicken sandwiches would be a perfect pairing for this sunny rosé. - Community Wine Reviews
