Ulithorne Epoch Cotes de Provence Rose, Provence, France 2012 $34
Made by Australian Rose Kentish in France. Very pale pink coloured with a purple tint, this has a shy aroma of dried-flowers and dusty dried herbs, and is very delicate in the mouth. The texture is soft and refreshing while it has satisfying weight and depth of flavour. It also tastes properly dry – without sweetness – which makes it a useful and adaptable food wine. Cork. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 89/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
Stockists: Australian Wine Centre (Sydney); Europa Cellars (Melbourne).
