One of the top producers of Provençal wines, the rosés from Château Leoube are both delicious and organic. Owned by Britain’s Bamford family, proprietors of machinery manufacturer JCB, but also the founders of Daylesford Organic – one of the UK’s most sustainable farms – it’s no surprise that the wines from Leoube are produced according to organic growing methods.

However, such an agricultural approach is no guarantee of quality, so it is wonderful to discover the high quality of Leoube’s produce. This particular rosé has the typical pale salmon pink appearance of Provençal pinks, and a moreish flavour combination of wild strawberry, ripe peach and pomegranate, with a touch of fresh pink grapefruit and redcurrant. This union of soft juicy fruit and more crunchy characters makes this a particularly indulgent and mouthwatering drink.

    Why is the abv on these wines at 14.5%. Isn’t wine traditionally 11-12%. All wines now seem to have a high abv?

    • The Australian wines are grown in warm dry areas (more suitable to Organic production). 14.5% is about right for these areas. Southern Rhone wines would be similar alc. levels. The important thing is that they are balanced.

    I don’t know about the other countries, but Australia has had an obsession with higher ABV wines for as long as I can remember.
