Left this a bit long but I'm enjoying it. Colour moving fromlight pink to orange. Nose, fruit perhaps lemon barley water and flower scent. Mouth, the lively zing of its youth has gone (as has the hint of sulphur which made me put these to one side). It now actually tastes pretty good; fruity and smooth. No flavours stand out but very integrated. This has come on a way and I enjoy it.
17th Annual Central Carolina Food and Wine Festival (Medallion Center, Columbia, SC.): Rose's from Provence are one of my favorite types of wine. Houchart is one of my favorite producers. These grapes were grown to make Rose, and have been for centuries. Even the color is a pretty distinctive salmon. The nose is floral, especially with roses. The palate is relatively light, but there still is a slight creaminess. The soft strawberry and red raspberry fruit is backed up with some mineral acidity. Roses and strawberry on the finish, with maybe some light tannins.
Red berries, citrusses and peach on the nose. A touch of caramel as well. Dry, light and crispy on the palate with berry fruit, peach, honey and hints of herbs. A balanced and thoroughly pleasent rosé.
