Provençal rosé

Château Riotor Rosé 2016, Côtes de Provence, AUD $29

Everyone I serve this wine to devours it. It is a pale, savoury, grenache-based Provençal rosé with nuances of strawberries and cream. The palate is weighty and textured, and there is loads of flavour. It has presence, weight and, most importantly, balance. One of the standouts in the French rosé category. (Screwcap)
