Proving that Italy can produce rosé to rival Provence, this delicious Tuscan pink is overflowing with red berry fruit from a base of predominantly Syrah grapes. With a slightly oily texture, the wine sits briefly on the tongue, before sliding down the back of the throat with a mouthwatering sensation – which is exactly the combination you want in a rosé.

    You might be surprised to know that one of the biggest export markets for South African rosé wine is ……. France. That’s right, France. Where does it all go? Can you buy bottles in your local Intermarche? No you can’t. The reason? It’s inside of those bottles labelled as ‘French’ rosé wine. Santé! mes amies.

    Pretty sure, that Minuit Rose is owned by Chateau d’Astros, not d’Escarelle? Very surprised not to find any Bandol wines, I must say.

    • Minuit Rose isn’t owned by Château d’Astros nor Château de l’Escarelle – it’s a privately held brand and its supplier varies between these 2 vineyards (as they have a very similar taste & specs) according to markets.

    More like best french rose, but 1 good Italian did get in. Missed Montes cherub rose and a bunch of good usa rose.
