Wine Of The Week #3 // Domaine Tempier Rose 2013


This 2013 rose is not to be underestimated, quite literally it is outstanding. Once praised as ‘the best rose in the world’ by the esteemed Robert Parker it does everything right, giving up notions of orange, blossom, mineral water, rose petal and seawater. Crisp and bountiful would be a suitable short description.

It hits the palate with a medium bodied, fresh and focused style and builds with time in the glass and exposure to the air, which brings through additional richness and depth. The wine can stand alone purely through it’s freshness yet would go beautifully with food too, specifically salads, seafood or anti-pasti.
