Rosé has been the libation of choice for guests this visit. The heat makes it a welcome choice. It is always fun to check out the different varieties at wine shops & the grocery store when we are out shopping. Different regions with different wine distributors makes the mix always interesting to peruse. This Commanderie de Peyrassol rosé is a Provençal wine I have seen in the past but have never tried. I am so often drawn to and like quite a bit, wines from Provence. This most certainly did not disappoint, and was quite tasty with a tomato sandwich.
From the maker: Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache make a balanced trio full of fruity flavours, nicely sharpened with a touch of Mourvèdre. Its rosy appearance is soft as a dream, and an expressive, gourmet nose lends charm to this blend dominated by wild berries: gooseberry and raspberry reveal themselves in a crisp, silky palate enhanced with an elegant touch of minerality. Ideal as an aperitif, to accompany tapas, but also goes well with all varieties of grilled fish, beef or fish tartare and fresh berry desserts.
