WINE OF THE MONTH

DOMAINE OTT, ROSE

COTES DE PROVENCE
FRANCE 2015

GLASS $9.75           BOTTLE $39.00

This south of France organic estate started in 1896 and still in the family, is the bench mark for Rose on the Mediterranean coast, the wine combines four grape varieties from the Côtes de Provence appellation including Grenache (over half) for the delicate colour and full-bodied texture. In lesser quantities, Cabernet Sauvignon – perfect for limestone soils – lends structure with a hint of spice, Cinsault offers softness and Syrah fruitiness.

Pale and pretty in crystal-clear pink with orange undertones. The nose is delicate and fruity with notes of white peach and apricot mixed with passion fruit and mango. The taste is full, fresh and crisp with echoes of the fruity aroma amplified by citrus zest and sweet spices (cinnamon and cardamom).
