Commanderie de Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rose 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

From the importer 'For us, this wine is the classic representation of the pink-tinted wines of this region... It carries a pale rose color, a lovely fruit blossom nose and finishes crisply dry with a stony touch that gives it class and elegance. The grape blend is usually Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah in varying percentages. The average age of the vines is 25 years or more. The Roses of Peyrassol are made from the direct press method. The grapes undergo cold maceration before being pressed. This gives them their beautiful watermelon pink color. The fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures and is exceptionally long, resulting in roses that are both lively, fresh and full-bodied.'

Strawberries in the nose with a floral tinge, maybe rose petals. Subtle acidity gradually builds on palate. Very clean. Slightly lower alcohol helps it pair great with food.
