Pure Pink Perfection + Provence Rosé Case contents
If you’re looking for the perfect lunchtime wine to go with a wide range of cuisines, you just found it! ‘The Doe’ is a rip-snorting South Australian Rosé full of flavour and kick. Its ripe, berry fruit and zesty, dry finish makes it a great lunchtime wine when a red is too much (at least to start!) and a white just doesn’t cut it. The Doe is raring to go with pizza, pasta, schnitzels and burgers – it will even take on a steak and win.
Petticoat is loved for its easy to drink, fruit-rich style reminiscent of watermelon and strawberries. And it stands out even more because grapes were left on the vine that little bit longer for a wonderful hint of sweetness. Zinfandel is California’s most widely planted red grape, providing the full gamut of styles from everyday drinking to fine, long-lived wines. The quicker the skins of the crushed grapes are separated from the juice, the lighter the colour. Petticoat is a hue the Americans often refer to as ‘blush’. Skin contact was just long enough to allow in all the fruitiness of the grape but no drying tannins. Enjoy Petticoat chilled, on its own, or with crudités or something more substantial like grilled prawns with spicy salsa.
If you’re a long-standing customer, the chances are you’ll have come across Scipione Giuliani’s ‘poppy wines’. About 20 years ago, Scipi blew critics away with his original Il Papavero – a humble ‘vino da tavola’ that offered near boundless drinking pleasure and astonishing value for money. Since then, he’s expanded the range, with every new release always offering the discerning drinker plenty of flavour for the money. And this mouthwatering rosé continues that trend. It’s crafted from Nero d’Avola, a southern Italian variety that’s normally used to make big, juicy reds. Scipi sourced his Nero in vineyards planted on slopes overlooking the sea, where cooling breezes contributed to this wine’s irresistible freshness. The perfect aperitif.
De-stemmed and crushed with the juice drained off directly to create a bright pink hue. The wine was then fermented cold in stainless steel using aromatic yeast strains. It's obviously a winning combination is the Gold and Double Gold medals are to go by – which they clearly are! Shiny rose gold in colour, fresh summer strawberries with a delicate floral undertone. Add a subtle hint of raspberries and a dry mineral finish and this is a fabulous wine for all occasions.
