Alkimi Le Mistral Rosé 2015

Hot days call for something cool. And this is.

A blend of Syrah, Grenache and a splash of Roussanne, this oozes summer time drinking.

Bright watermelon like appearance (the pic right doesn't do it justice), aromas of red cherry, blueberry, raspberry, rhubarb and a suggestion of pomegranate. Summer berry fruits reign supreme in the glass and the lick of residual sugar doesn't do any harm. The Roussanne fattens the delivery somewhat without seizing control - well played Mr Winemaker. Super refreshing with some gentle tannins. Very slurpable. Very good.

Pour me another please.

Very good.
