Cotes du Rhone "Rosé d'Archas" - Chateau Bizard

A lightly coloured and crisp rosé that wouldn't go amiss in Provence, this Grenache/Syrah blend is actually from neighbouring Rhone Valley, and as such represents superb value. The bouquet is dominated by tropical fruit, tangerines, strawberries and cream and dried rose petals. The acidity is wonderfully high on the palate and with very tangy yet creamy cranberry flavours. Great with salads, crab/lobster or Middle Eastern mezze.
