PR Cotes de Provence Rosé 2016

09 February,2018

pr‘PR’ is the Cotes de Provence Rosé brand of Adam Payne of Pink Vines, based in the South of France. The brand is widely distributed in the U.K., and its success is based on a strong understanding of the growing contemporary demand for Provencal rosé wines, very active marketing, and quality product. Pink Vines aim is to "become a leading brand within the rosé market”. The brand made its appearance in New Zealand last summer. The PR Rosé is made by Domaine de la Sangliere, at Bormes de Mimosa in the Lavendou area of the Cote d’Azur, near to Toulon. Here I review the 2016 vintage wine. www.provencalrose.com

PR Cotes de Provence Provencal Rosé 2016

Rose from France – Other

17+/20

Bright, very pale peach-pink colour with slight orange hues, lighter on the edge. This has an elegant nose with delicate, finely concentrated and firm aromas of white stonefruits with suggestions of florals and red fruits, along with some marzipan nuttiness at the core. This is refreshingly steely unfolding mineral hints. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a firm core of white stonefruits entwined with nutty and mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is crisp and steely with fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line. The palate is mouth-wateringly dry with a driven, positive line, leading to a slippery finish. This is a finely concentrated, firm, mouthwatering dry rosé with stonefruit, nutty and mineral flavours Serve as an aperitif and with tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Cinsault from the Cotes de Provence, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 0.5 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $25.00
