Lapostolle Le Rose 2020
Clean and pale pink color, with salmon shades. Elegant and delicate nose of red fruit aromas such as strawberry and sweet cucumber along with subtle herbal notes. Refreshing, light with nice acidity, mouth feel with a long lasting finish. Le Ros is sourced from a selection of the best lots of Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache and Mourv dre from the Apalta and Colchagua Valleys. All grapes were harvested earlier in the season to keep high level of acidity and a fresh fruit expression. The grapes are carefully pressed and the free run juice is decanted naturally at low temperature. All fermentations were made in stainless steel tanks and the wine was stored for 3 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. The Le Rose is French in heritage, it is French in style and is to be enjoyed like the best of French roses. Serve ideally with aperitif, fresh salads, fish and seafood. Will also do well with bittersweet and spicy dishes such as ricotta cheese and chives empanadas and Turkish apricot with bacon. Very attractive sliced peach and hints of cherry and watermelon in the nose and palate. Medium body. Fruity and fresh. The very pale 2020 Le Ros is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 26% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 6% Mourvedre with moderate alcohol (12.5%) and very good freshness, subtle and closer to a white than a light red. It reveals notes of dry rose petals and a dry and austere finish, refreshing and ideal for food. The 2020 Le Ros is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 26% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 6% Mourv dre from Apalta. An onion skin ros whose nose features rose petal, earth and sour cherry. Terse in the mouth with a moderate acidity and light-footed flow. A pleasant whiff of raki lingers at the back of the throat.
