2015 BY. Ott Rosé, Domaine Ott

The weather was not in the mood that day, but I was. Cloudy, a rather cold breeze and 13 degrees Celsius outside, but I was still in the mood.
For what, one might ask?
The years first rosé.
A tasting sample from VinUnic.

This 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah blend displays a cool, fresh, tight nose with notes of red currants, rhubarb, chrushed rocks and a hint of passion fruit. Very good. There is some earthy scents here as well, besides the chrushed rocks, almost like charcoal. Salivating. Makes the weather feels a bit more like summer like...
The taste is cool and handsome with notes of red currants, granite, herbs and dried up passion fruit. The finish is medium long and sports a very fine acidity, leaving the mouth firm and dry after each sip. This is a very good rosé for those chicken sallads and grilled fish dishes that will be had during the summer.
