Rose' in the hot summer in Texas is a welcome relief. Very good wine, excellent value.
I have drunk Fitou rose and Rose d'Anjou both of which I prefer to this wind. It is a bit dry for my and my wife's taste
La Vieille Ferme Rose is made from Cinsault (50%), Grenache (40%), and Syrah (10%) grapes. It is a medium-bodied wine that is light red in color, and gives off aromas of red berry (strawberry, cranberry, etc.), grape, and a slightly earthy scent. It has very little sweetness or tannins and is moderate in terms of fruit and acidity. At the onset, acidity overwhelms with this one, but slowly fades away and balances out as fruit flavors appear. In the 30-45 second time frame, harmony is reached as the flavors and acidity balance further, and from 45 seconds onward, this balance continues as the flavors gently reside. All in all, this rose is a dry, delicate wine that is pleasant but nothing to write home about. It would be great with appetizers, or as a good compromise to offer a divided group of red and white wine lovers.
