The Palm by Whispering Angel Rosé

The Palm by Whispering Angel Rosé 2019

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Provence, South of France, FranceThe Palm mixes mostly grenache with small amounts of cinsault and syrah from vineyards around Provence. The colours are a shade darker than its cousin Whispering Angel, with more of an orange/pink hue in 2019. Likely one of the few rosés in the world that is optically sorted to select only the best individual berries, the fruit is gently crushed before ageing on lees in stainless steel. Not quite the ethereal experience of Whispering Angel, but this rosé will have broad appeal for its slippery palate of lemon and fresh flavours streaked with tangerines and crisp acidity to fill the finish. Serve with grilled prawns to the best effect.Tasted: 16 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 27.99 select private wine shops Producer: Château d'EsclansDistributors: Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits of Canada
