With the long, awaited promise of ‘sun’, finally figuring in the forecast, for the next few days at least, it is time to ‘seize the day’, don the shorts, light the BBQ and reach for the rose!
Following on from our most popular offer, featuring the tantalizing dry white and harmoniously fruit driven, red wines from Chateau Mourgues du Gres, we are delighted to introduce the domaine’s equally irresistible, Fleur d’Eglantine Rose. Produced from our beloved, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre blend, that is responsible for many of the unctuously, full bodied, red wines of the Southern Rhone, one might be forgiven for expecting this rose to be overtly rich and powerful. In complete contrast however, the Fleur d’Eglantine, is a deliciously delicate and vibrant rose, with fabulous freshness and finesse.
As with all the wines from Mourgues du Gres, the Fleur d’Eglantine has been produced with the same meticulous care and attention. It is completely organic and produced from grapes that have reached optimum ripeness in the sunny climate, but thanks to the cooling influence of the sea breeze, has retained a refreshing acidity and an exquisite elegance.
2020 Fleur D’Eglantine Rose
The Fleur d’Eglantine, takes its name from the ‘Dog Roses’, found in the vineyards, as pictured above. With an attractively subtle colour in the glass and a fragrant bouquet, delicately floral with red berry fruits and hints of mineral. Dry on the palate, with delicious red berry/strawberry and red currants, with fine, saline minerality, balanced by a refreshing lift of acidity. Lovely focus, vibrancy and finesse. Delicious on its own and perfect with grilled fish, chicken, pork and vegetable dishes or summer salads.
