This is a fruity wine with aromas of strawberry and confectionary together with hints of black pepper and a balanced sweetness.
The wine comes from vineyards in the south west between Angers and Saumurs where most of the famous Loire Chateau are located. Anjou wines have been enjoyed in Europe since the 18th century.
Rosé d’Anjou is an appellation for rosé wines from the Anjou district of France’s western Loire Valley wine region. The vineyard soils are made up of schist and shelly sand.
The grapes were gently pressed after a brief maceration to impart the delicate pink colour to the wine. Fermentation was not completed through to dryness in order to preserve a natural sweetness in the resulting wine.
With a pretty pink hue, this is a fruity rosé with fresh strawberry flavours combined with white fruit and a hint of black pepper. Round with a balanced sweetness.
Serve chilled as an apéritif, with salads or cold meats. This rosé is delicious with spicy foods.
