Dowie Doole Rosé

Dowie Doole

Dowie Doole has created a wine where the McLaren Vale meets the South of France. The rosés of Provence are not only known for being a delicate pale pink in colour and having a distinct silky texture.  In Provence, winemakers can add a portion of white wine grapes to the expected red wine grapes to create their blend. These white wine grapes could be Semillon, Ugni Blanc or Rolle, which is also known as Vermentino.

So, not only do Dowie Doole do a Vermentino white, they have also recently introduced a Grenache Vermentino rosé. The blend is 87% Grenache from 54 year old vines and 13% Vermentino following the style of those Provençal pinks. It is dry, silkily textured with ripe stonefruit and melon deliciousness.

This is a great wine for enjoying with food or just enjoying with friends. Why not try it with grilled scallops with a garlic and cream sauce or a warm chicken salad. Just chill it down and enjoy it whatever the weather. 

Quickie review «The crisp, silky texture of this pale, dry pink is very evocative of the South of France and an excellent match for food. »
