WSET Fortifieds exam is done, check. Sparklings too, check. Had some beer, check. Now it’s onto the…. rosé? Yup, you read it right – the rosé.
This wine is clear and bright and well, it’s gosh darned beautiful. Yes, beautiful. It’s so pretty it makes you want to smile. It’s pink – as in candy floss pink, bubblegum and watermelon. But don’t be mislead – there’s no sweetness here.
On the nose it’s all rose petals, blossoms, strawberries and the slightest hit of jalapeño pepper. Youthful and light. The palate is dry with medium plus acidity, low alcohol, medium minus alcohol, no perceptible tannins and medium minus body. The medium plus flavours include more red and jalapeño peppers, cherries, strawberries and blossoms with a refreshing minerality.
Love it – a fine example, Direct Wines. Thank you for bringing a refreshing and lovely example of the Loire to our market.
