A pale pink in colour, this Piquepoul rosé has a delicate nose of cherry blossom, strawberries and peaches.

The palate is wonderfully fresh with summer berry flavours and notes of crushed rose petals. The fruity notes are balanced perfectly with a lively, citrus acidity leaving the palate refreshed.

In the Press

Recently reviewed by Natalie Earl on Decanter.com it scored 87 points

"Extremely pale pink, almost not there. The nose is restrained and mild with suggestions of grapefruit, peach, lemon and rose. The palate is bracing and tangy. There is appeal here, and it's screaming out for seafood - tiger prawns or dressed crab."

Languedoc-Rousillon, France

The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines.

Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many appellations that maintain traditional local blends and styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.

Picpoul (Piquepoul)

An old French white wine variety that’s recently become increasingly popular for its lip-zapping white wines that pair perfectly with shellfish, oysters, and fried foods.

There are three versions, the dark-skinned Piquepoul noir, a very little grown Piquepoul gris, and the more common light-skinned Piquepoul blanc. The best examples come from the small Languedoc appellation of Picpoul de Pinet.
