We thought we'd try some magnums and, for some reason, Bordeaux-shaped 150cl bottles were not available with a Stelvin screwcap fitting. And we quite liked the different shape. They are sold in nifty three-magnum cases - the equivalent of 6 bottles.
This Provençal-style pale pink has sold out quickly all too often in the past so we made more of it in 2019, so regulars wouldn't miss out.
The back label: ‘For our 20th vintage, our dry rosé was made from equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested quite early, in September, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine. 12% vol.’
This is the house rosé at Rick Stein's restaurants and has been for many years. Great for Spring and Summer, sure, but this is really good with food and pairs surprisingly well with all things spice. We drink it with Thai green curry. And on the terrace, touch wood.
Available in cases of 3 magnums.
