Wine of the Week AU

Aix Côteaux d’Aix en Provence Rosé 2016, Provence, AUD $35

The colour is youthful salmon pink-purple, the aroma sweetly spicy with raspberry and background dried herb nuances. The palate is soft and fruity, flavoursome and charming, with a faint flick of sweetness in harmony with the wine. It finishes clean and dry, with richness and length. An impressive rosé which is drinking at its best now.
