Wine Of The Week # 20 // Le Saint André Rosé

117_1.png

Produced in the heartland of Aix En Provence, an area that produces truly delectable wines in this variety, and in some views the best rosé to be had. This region is on the South-East coast, benefiting from two key elements; long hours of sunshine that cultivates and number of grape varieties and a thermal buffer created by the sea, allowing for greater ambient heat allowing an earlier harvest.

This rosé is classic, pale salmon pink in colour and incredibly delicate. To the nose it provides strawberries, apples and fragrant herbs whilst the palate begins with a gentle fruity acidity, leading to long, rich finish definitive of Provence, spice and sea air reminiscent of that Mediterranean freshness. A lovely bottle that would compliment shellfish, anti-pasti and grilled chicken. 75cl // 12.5% ABV // £10.99
