Ogier 2011 Côte de Ventoux Rosé
From vineyards in the shadow of Mount Ventoux, this pale salmon coloured wine captures the essential spirit of southern France. This grenache-based rosé is fresh, dry and engaging, with lifted aromas of rhubarb, currant, red onion, pepper and dried herb. It is mid-weight, firm and spicy, with a slightly hot and bitter finish.
- Ontario: $11
