Domaine Houchart Rosé Côtes de Provence 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Rhone and Bordeaux varietals planted on clay and limestone soils were fermented separately before ageing in tank, resulting in a salmon-pink colored wine. Aromas of cirtrus and strawberries precede flavors of red berries, watermelon and mineral notes. The finish is clean, long and refreshing - Importer's Notes

Light orange. Strawberry and pink grapefruit on the fragrant nose. Red berry and citrus zest flavors are nicely focused and dry, with a deeper cherry quality appearing on the back half. Spreads out on the finish, leaving behind a juicy tangerine note.

Light and fresh, this is a crisp, red berry flavored wine with lively acidity and a dry, bright aftertaste. Ready to drink.

Plump and friendly, with peach, mango and white cherry notes framed with a gentle floral edge. A very open, accessible style, fresh and detailed. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. Drink now.
