Tavel is renowned as a deeply coloured rosé from the Southern Rhône. The antithesis of pale Provence rosé, this is a fruit forward, full-bodied, age-worthy gastronomic wine.

It is made from a blend of Grenache (65%) and Cinsault (35%) grown on the galets (pebble terroir), similar to its illustrious neighbour Chateauneuf du Pape. Prima Donna offers powerful aromas of red fruit and citrus fruit. On the palate, concentration and silky structure make this a magnificent wine for gastronomy.

It pairs with all types of Mediterranean food. Its ability to cope with heat and spice make it an essential partner to Indian food.
