Domaine du Père Caboche Vin de Pays Vaucluse Rosé 2012

The recent change to cooler temperatures has been encouraging me to pour heartier reds, although a very warm September afternoon inspired me to pour a Rosé that my sister had brought over a few weeks ago that we never got around to enjoying.  Domaine du Père has belonged to the same family since the mid 17th century. The family also has estates in Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf du Pape that have belonged to them since 1777, with vines over 100 years old. They passionately craft wines with the tradition and knowledge of their ancestors and focus on letting the wine “reflect to their best their soil and the vine-growers’s job.

Coral pink in colour with aromas of strawberry and wet slate. Strawberry and raspberry flavours joined grapefruit zest and minerals in the crisp finish. Refreshing and super easy drinking, you will be surprised at how swiftly your glass empties!
