Château Saint-Roch Côtes de Provence Rosé 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Cinsault, this rosé comes from a cooperative winery in the ancient Provençal village of Cuers, and smells of bright red berries, and the palate is lively and full of crisp, food-friendly acidity. A nose of white peach and strawberry-raspberry. In the mouth, pretty lively pink grapefruit, blending into the roundness of summer fruits for a nice balance between fruit and minerality. The perfect summer wine to share in the shade.

Translucent bright pink rose hue with an intriguing nose of dried strawberries, Rainer cherries, and rose-petals; dry and crisp on the palate, it sings with blushingly bright red berry fruits with a hint of minerality across a refreshing long departure.

Blush peach bright, aromas of fresh cherries, dried strawberries and wet straw; explosive red stone fruit notes with rhubarb and a kiss of cassis over a clean and refreshingly long finish.
