Natalie's Score: 87/100

A light-bodied, bright rosé, fragrant with rose petal, ripe strawberries, stone fruit and dried herb aromas on the nose. This is a Mourvèdre and Grenache Gris blend juicy and zesty with ripe melon, stone fruit and Meyer's lemon flavours on the palate. So easy drinking. Chill and enjoy now with a picnic basket.

Rosé food pairings: grilled sausages, antipasto, charcuterie and cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh strawberry, red cherry, and watermelon over mild lemon and stone fruit. Dry and crisp with lively acidity and a gently textured palate and finish. Mediterranean rose, a natural food wine with endless pairing possibilities. Try with seafood salad or cheese ravioli.
Tessellae 2018 rosé is great value under $17. a light-bodied, easy-to-enjoy Côtes Catalanes rosé made from 70% Mourvèdre and 30% Grenache Gris. Floral on the nose with bright strawberry, raspberry, ripe stone fruit and dried herb flavours on the palate. Chill and enjoy with salads and brunch fare. - Community Wine Reviews

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