When the sun comes out, it’s time to think of rosé! Pick a bottle of rosé from the French Mediterranean coast and it's likely to be dry, light in body, characterised with a good acidity and is often pale. Very few producers outside of the south of France produce rosé wine in such a consistent style, though Greece's Gaia is a stand out competitor. This mixed 3 pack consists of our favourite Mediterranean rosés that go down a treat in the spring sunshine:
- Whispering Angel - Côtes de Provence
- Château les Crostes - Côtes de Provence
- Gaia Rosé - Greek Peloponnese
Raspberry, Blackberry, Plum Sauce, Black Pepper, Nutmeg
Synonyms: Aghiorghitiko, Mavro Nemeas, Mavrostaphylo Mavraki
Literally meaning 'St George's grape', this varietal is native to the eastern part of the Peloponnese in Greece. Agiorgitiko is extremely versatile and can create a wide range of wine styles. Sometimes used in blends alongside other varieties, styles also range from fresh, fruity rosés to full bodied, tannic reds. The wines from Nemea are full-bodied and are exceptional. Pairs well with roast meats and spicy cuisines.
