Rose in Provence is lively, savoury, fresh and young, and it's refreshing to find it reach Australia sufficiently youthful to hold its captivating vibe. Don't be put off by this strangely curvaceous bottle, because its contents are enticingly pure, alive with crunchy pomegranate and pink grapefruit, finishing long, textural, chalky and mineral.
From a 40 hectare estate owned by the same family for 3 generations, the present owner, Monsieur José Garcia has been making the wines since 1980. The vineyards lie on clay-limestone soil located in the commune of Pourcieux between Brignoles and Aix-en-Provence. A combination of modern winemaking techniques and traditional ageing produces distinctive wines with lots of personality. These have received numerous medals at tasting competitions and been cited in many guides including the prestigious Guide Hachette.
