Rosé goes beautifully with a sunset – in more ways than one , says Neil Bingham of Beaconsfield Wine Cellars
I am hoping that the wind will have dropped and the temperature will have risen and that we can draw the cork of a well chilled bottle of rosé wine now.
The one that I am thinking of is Chateau L’Aumerade 2014 from Provence.
This lovely wine comes off a single estate of four hundred acres which has belonged to the same family for many years.
The soil in Provence is red, very rich quality and full of minerals and the rosé wine from the area is, consequently, very full of flavours
The bouquet of the wine is a heavenly combination of strawberry and orange, the flavour is a mixture of grapefruit, lemon and strawberry with a lovely lingering crisp dry finish.
This rosé would compliment anything light and summery even a lovely sunset.
