#Welikewine – Coeur de Cardeline Provence Rosé

Coeur de CardelaineSummer is coming. Light evenings, Bank Holiday weekends, BBQ parties with friends and family, the fragrance of freshly cut lawns and the prospect of many sunny days outdoors – if we’re lucky. So, what could be more perfect to accompany our precious days of relaxation than a bottle of this petal pink rosé from Provence?

The vineyards of the Côtes de Provence stretch inland from the famous coastline of the French Riviera. The region specialises in rosé wines, although it also produces some serious Rhône-like reds. This Coeur de Cardeline rosé has a delicate, light colour compared to some of the brasher bubble gum pink wines that you’ll find on the shelves that, to my mind, looks more appealing and sophisticated in the glass. Served chilled, you’ll taste fresh pear and lime notes with a hint of cherry, not the sickly sweet strawberry hit of many other summer party wines. The Grenache grape gives it depth of flavour and the ‘zing’ comes from the Cinsault grape. So, pour yourself a glass, break out the deckchairs and get some seafood sizzling on the BBQ.
