Gris Marin Gris de Gris Rosé Sable de Camargue

This is probably our palest rosé, although we don’t think you should be colour prejudiced!  All our rosés are dry – even the darker ones – and none are anything like the neon bright ones of the supermarket pink wines section.  (Are they marketing those wines to gender-stereotypical six year old girls?)

This one’s so pale it’s called a vin gris – grey wine?  Not exactly, vins gris are wines made from varieties such as Grenache Gris in this case – grapes with a light grey/dusty pink skin colour which adds less colour (and tannin) to the wines than traditional black grapes used to make most rosés.  This one’s grown in sandy soil on the edge of the Camargue – the salt marshes where the Rhône runs into the Mediterranean – and so brings a good hit of refreshing, crisp salinity to the mix.

Delicious ripe peach and melon, with a twist of pink grapefruit zest and the freshness of a sea breeze.  An enchantingly pale, copper coloured rosé – even more sophisticated looking than its chic cousins from Provence – with a lovely weight and texture across the length of the palate and a dusting of southern French spice.

It’s great with salty snacks.  Try it with tapenade – the traditional southern French olive paste – if you can find some.  (It’s easy to make.  Just blitz pitted black or green olives with spices and herbs to your taste.  We recommend green olives with basil and lemon zest, or black olives with orange zest and harissa).  It’s also great with lunch time salads; shellfish – particularly prawns; or salty, thick cut Spanish jamon.  It’s particularly good with crisps!
