It’s a beautiful, sunny day in Portland, so I thought it appropriate to break out the first bottle of pink wine for the summer!
Wine Name: Guilhem Moulin de Gassac Rosé
Blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache. 20 year old vines.
Origin: France (Languedoc-roussillon, Vin de Pays de l’Hérault)
Grapes: Syrah and Grenache, from 20 year old vines.
Cost: about $12
My thoughts: The color of this wine was a really pale pinkish orange. It smelled like ripe peaches and honey. The flavor was crisp with just a hint of acidity and a medium finish. This would be great for an apertif or with fish or chicken. I can imagine drinking this all summer long.
