Winemaker Notes

Delicate pink in color, this cool climate Rose from Provence stands out among the rest. With hints of white flower, ripe peach and sweet clementine on the nose, this crisp wine draws you in immediately. On the palate you find subtle minerality, sun-warmed strawberry and ripe red berries. The elegant, smooth finish leaves you wanting for more!

Pairs well with oysters on the half shell.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Digression Rosé from Provence is a Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache blend and is scented of kirsch, raspberry leaves, white pepper and garrigue with a waft of lavender. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft-spoken and savory, with great freshness and a bit of spice to the finish.

Cotes de Provence

View all wine

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

Rosé Wine

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
