A perfectly formed selection of rose wines whatever the weather.
- Domaine Terres Georges Cinsault Languedoc 2018 13.5% £19
The second vintage of this utterly charming wine from the utterly charming Roland & Anne-Marie Coustal. Subtle and elegant with that gentle creamy texture, red fruits and a delicious savoury note at the finish.
- Whispering Angel Grenache & Carignan & Syrah & Cinsault & Vermentino Provence 2018 13% £32
If I’m being brutally honest then I’d personally rather drink the wine above but let’s be honest here, that wine doesn’t say Whispering Angel on it and this one does. Branding works.
- South Africa
- False Bay ‘Basket Pressed’ Cinsault Western Cape 2019 Vg 12% £17
Another terrific wine from this range. This nods firmly in the direction of Provence from the ever so pale pink to the subtlety and sophistication that runs right through it. An absolute bargain.
- Burlesque Zinfandel California 2018 Vg 11% £16
Just what it is meant to be, an unpretentious, sweeter style of rose. All American Cream Soda and candy-floss but it still has a definite charm and freshness to that sweetness. As good a white Zin as you will find.
