It is great to see more and more rosés like this coming out that are not shy on flavour, which makes them infinitely more flexible when its comes to food matching. It’s a classic Southern Rhone blend here with cinsault playing a role – there should be more of it. Pale onion skin pink before the raspberry and watermelon fruits come thick and fast with an undercurrent of apricot, and a dusting of warm earth. Mataro makes its presence felt on the palate with a fullish body and firm acidity plus some savoury, earthy complexity. There is surprising fruit power which dives through to a long finish. Match it up with a mediterranean mezze platter.
