Chateau d'Acqueira 2011 Tavel
Sleepy Tavel makes the best known, heftiest rosé in France. This deeply coloured garnet wine packs 14% alcohol. Lifted red plum, strawberry and lavender scents complement intriguing licorice and pomegranate rind bitterness on the finish. It is medium full-bodied, smooth and rich, with excellent length.
- Ontario: $19
