It’s time to welcome the season of blush-coloured wines, and discover an exciting new French-style Rosé
Nobody does relaxed summers quite like the French, particularly those in the Provence region – home to endless vineyards and lavender fields. Picture a sunny spot amid the vines, a picnic hamper, baguette, olives and a round of brie, accompanied of course by a bottle or two of salmon-hued Rosé, and you pretty much have the perfect summer’s outing.
If you like the sound of that picture, there’s now a French-style Rosé wine from Australia to complete it for you.
Jacob’s Creek’s new Le Petit Rosé was inspired by the winemaking style and way of life of Provence. Rather than using Syrah grapes to make their new Rosé (as is common in Australia), Jacob’s Creek winemakers used a blend of Pinot Noir, Grenache and Mataro grapes, cold-pressing them to keep the natural crispness and flavours, resulting in a dry and crisp style.
What you get is an elegant pale Rosé, with delicate rose petal and spice aromas, cranberry and cherry flavours and a lightly textured finish. The perfect accompaniment to French-style long Kiwi lunches and easy dinners in the sun, (Jacob’s Creek Le Petit Rosé, RRP$17.99).
Now that you’ve sorted your favourite wine for summer, get yourself into the draw to win a Jacob’s Creek Le Petit Rosé Girlfriend's Prize Pack.
