Rosé wines
Rosé wines
Rosé is a much underrated style of wine, due mainly to the fairly dire, mass-produced offerings to be had from many of the large chains and supermarkets. Much better to stick with the smaller producers, who lavish much more care on the wines they produce.

Unlike most rosés, which are made only from free-run juice (and therefore merely a by-product of the red wine-making process) this is a "vin de pressurage" - the grapes are pressed and used only for this wine. Ultra-pale orange-pink-onion skin in colour, with a nose that is delightfully fresh and vibrant, offering notes of white stone fruits, redcurrant, orange peel, strawberries and clotted cream, with a subtle whiff of garrigue herbs and plenty of wet stone minerality. The palate too is fresh, zingy and chock full of those summer fruit flavours, again infused with gentle garrigue herb nuances and hints of fennel seed and orange peel. And whilst the nose may be creamy, the texture is focused, grippy and pretty much bone-dry, with a mountain stream freshness, laser-like acidity, the merest suggestion of grape skin tannin and a long, ever-so-slightly spicy finish. All-in-all, this is a beautifully-crafted rosé, which puts me in mind of the rather more expensive rosés produced by Domaines Ott in Provence. Enough said!

Turner Pageot 48H 2016

Clairet is a term the Bordelais use for a light red wine, or a dark(er) rosé. The method is basically saignée - free-run juice from the red wine-making process - but taken only after an extended 48 hour maceration (hence the name 48H). The colour is more of a light ruby red than rosé - and indeed it is closer in style to a red wine, offering masses of juicy cherry, raspberry, orange, tobacco and garrigue herb aromas. In the mouth, it has genuine body and depth, with ripe raspberry and blood orange flavours, a gently creamy texture, a touch of spice, plenty of cherry-skin acidity, a modicum of tannin and a surprisingly long, spicy finish. All of which makes it a perfect match for a multitude of dishes. A delicious wine! Certified organic and biodynamic.

E & F Jourdan Aramon Rose 2017

Alcohol (a.b.v)
Food Grilled vegetables, cold cuts, salads, pizza
Next day
Still good
Drink Now or over the next 2 or 3 years
A bright, pale to mid-pink colour. A riot of raspberries, strawberries and cream on the nose, quite floral too, with hints of garrigue herbs (oregano, rosemary, fennel). The palate is beautifully smooth and gently creamy, with flavours of red berry and currant fruits and white peach, offset by a touch of granny smith apple tartness, along with gentle spice and herb notes, a hint of tannin and really juicy acidity. This is serious rosé, to match the best Provence has to offer, with a lingering sweet-sour finish. Cracking stuff, and great to drink now, or to age for a year or two.

Price:  £12.79 (Including: VAT at 20%)
