Chateau d'Ollieres Rose, 2015, Provence

Sold out.

If there were an archetypal template for Provencal rose somewhere in Gods filing cabinet listed under ‘2nd day’ then this would be it - an enchanting wine of delicacy and nuance with a delightfully subtle wash of pink, almost more of a blush really, and distinct flavours of raspberry and strawberry with a soft, creamy texture. And there you have it, strawberries and cream, delicious! Fresh, soft, fruity but dry, and intensely drinkable with a cheeky edge of spiciness that lifts the palate, what more is there to say!?
