“This is the best rose in Chile with sliced white peaches, hints of lemons and flowers. Medium-bodied, fresh and dry. Vibrant. I am taking it to St. Tropez. Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Cinsault.” – 93 Points, James Suckling
“Le Rose comes from the narrower San Jose sub-region of the Apalta Valley and is a very French blend of mostly Cinsault with 44% Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Direct pressed in the best Provencal style, it’s pale, elegant and sappy with appealing perfume and redcurrant fruit flavors.” – 90 Points, Tim Atkin
