A simple but nice crisp rosé that’s a good alternative to Sauvignon Blanc for summer fun

Description: Light salmon in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features passion fruit, pink grapefruit, strawberry and pink roses on the nose. Light to medium body with good acidity and a good length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Encircled by the Côtes de Provence, the Coteaux Varois en Provence appellation, ten times smaller than its big sister, has a very specific character, due to its terroir and very unique climate.

Drink now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with Asian-Style Scampi with spiced herb relish.
