Rogers & Rufus Rosé 2010

I tasted this rosé in the final stages of an unseasonably warm winter month, overlooking the sea.  Yet it is still summer which it suits.  I’ve been drinking a lot of grenache in the last 6 months – dry, its underrated vin doux naturel guise where it makes the compelling wines of Banyuls, Rasteau, Maury and Rivesaltes, and this wine, a rosé.  It is to me perhaps one of the noble rosé grapes.  Salmon in colour, Rogers & Rufus’ 2010 rosé offers up dry and pleasant summer drinking at cautious alcohol levels.  Stone fruit characters are predominant, with a touch of spice.  Enjoyable drinking.  85 points
