Whole Bunch Cinsault-Mourvèdre is not cobbled together from off-cuts of leftover red and white wine. Nor is it over-cropped red grapes pressed aggressively to maximise juice yield and confected aromas. The wine comes from low-yielding, coastal vineyards, delicately whole-bunch basket pressed for only the purest juice. A fine wine that happens to be pink.
Old bush vine cinsault forms the backbone of this 'proper' rosé. A pale, spicy, and textural rosé mostly sourced from bush-vine cinsault with summer fruits on the palate and a lovely clean, savory, and dry finish. There is almost no food that fails to work with this wine. Perfect with Mediterranean dishes especially juicy pan-fried garlic prawns...or drink chilled on its own.
