2022 Ultimate Provence UP Rosé
The UP Ultimate Provence rosé is a blend of the grape varieties Grenache Noir (30%), Cinsault (30%), Syrah (30%) and Rolle Alexis Cornu (10%). The wine comes from the Appelatie Côtes de Provence. The Ulitimate Provence terroir covers 114 hectares of which about 1/3 are vineyards and the rest is pure nature. The vineyard is nestled in La Garde-Freinet, in the beautiful hinterland of the Var near Saint-Tropez. The estate is criss-crossed with vines and is also dotted with olive trees. The vines are also protected by the Massif des Maures mountain range. They grow on a soil of sandstone and slate.
For this UP Ultimate Provence Rose, the grapes are harvested in the relative cool of the night to avoid premature fermentation and thus preserve the freshness that is so typical of a (good) Provence rosé. Did you know that the UP Ultimate Provence rose is made by the same winemakers as the famous Chateau de Berne. The UP Ultimate Provence rosé has a very seductive nose and a pale color. On the palate, the intense fruitiness of ripe red fruits such as raspberries and strawberries is supported on the palate by a light mineral freshness, enhanced by spicy notes of white pepper and light red fruits. Don't drink this rose wine too cold, that's a shame for this beautiful wine. Around 8-10°C is perfect.
The UP is a fresh wine with high acidity for food pairing, but roundness to enjoy on its own. The spicy notes of the Syrah provide a dry, white pepper that is distinctive. A touch of Rolle gives great acidity and clarity that gives notes of winter citrus, spice and a warming finish. Ultimate Provence rosé is a perfect wine to take to a BBQ and serve with grilled chicken or vegetable skewers. You can also combine the wine with shellfish, salads or seafood. In addition to the content, the presentation is also great and this bottle is a jewel on the table.
