2014 Longhop Rosé

imageA far greater sense of sweetness than the pale hue might indicate. So much for generalisations.

Even straight out of the fridge it’s expressive. Redskins, pink flowers and icing sugar with counterpoints of bouquet garni. That sweetness on the front palate is somewhat cleansed by acid and then entwined with herbs at the end. Has a bit of chew. I can’t possibly know how you’d like it the most but the bottle suggests always serving it chilled – I concur. Any other way and it can become cloying. Worked pretty well with a Mediterranean sort of pork stew…and I’m sure you all enjoyed that little insight into how I eat when there are limited ingredients in the house. 87
