Rosé is going through something of a revolution. No longer are they all about high residual sugar and tutti frutti flavours – today Rosé’s are a little more sophisticated, they can be interesting and complex and can be a great wine style to pair with food.
Last year Glen Carlou released its first Rosé, The Curator’s Collection Mourvèdre Tannat Rosé from the 2016 vintage. This blended rose Mourvèdre (58%) and Tannat (42%) is deep raspberry pink in appearance with aromas of pomegranates, cranberries with hints of Turkish delight. It is fresh and light with balanced acidity and makes for a great aperitif wine.
The fact that the wine is dry with the perception of sweetness makes it an incredibly appropriate wine for a variety of foods and occasions.
It is ideal as a lunch time sipper, toasting the setting sun or long lazy picnic afternoons – the wafts of pomegranates and Turkish delight are balanced by the savoury palate.
