The love for Rosé is growing at an exponential rate. Why? Because the current style is fresh, delicate, and naturally tied to good times and frivolity. This new trend has led to refined wines of freshness and delicacy that quench the thirst in warm weather and pair perfectly with countless dishes.

Rosé can be made from a host of different red grape varieties including Grenache, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Each grape lends different elements to Rosé wine. Grenache, for instance, creates a fruity style of Rosé with a bright ruby hue and notes of ripe strawberry, orange, hibiscus and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, on the other hand, will be generally darker in colour with cherry and blackcurrant with subtle savoury spice and slight herbaceous notes. Pinot Noir will produce a Rosé with crisp acidity and soft aromas of red apple, watermelon, red berries and minerality, while Syrah will create a Rosé with deep colour and notes of white pepper, peach skin, strawberry, and dark cherry with some savoury undertones.

This fashionable style pays homage to the wines of Provence, a long-time proponent of the elegant, dry Rosé. In this Southern French region, a chilled glass of Rosé is quite often preferred to a white alternative in the summer months because of its irresistible simplicity. It is a wine to drink rather than savour, to enjoy rather than cellar. Its brilliance lies in its widespread appeal and uncomplicated nature.

There are three distinct ways in which Rosé wine can be made. There is the blending method which involves a small amount of red wine being blended into a tank of white wine. This is most commonly used in sparkling Rosé, particularly in Champagne. The second method is the Saignée or ‘Bled’ method, in which juice is bled off in the process of making red wine. This has a dual function of producing a lovely Rosé as well as concentrating the flavour of the result red wine the juice was taken from. The final and most common method is the maceration method, in which red wine skins are left to macerate in the juice for a period of time lending the resulting wine a pinkish hue. This is the method employed in Provence and the method used for the MadFish Rosé.

Tasting Notes

This Grenache and Shiraz blend is an extremely inviting, ethereal pale pink, aromatically subtle at first, with delicate florals and gentle fruit esters giving way to more assertive citrus peel, tangerine, red apple, strawberry and cranberry notes flecked with musk and spice. The delicate appearance belies a vibrant and rich palate with pliant acidity and fresh berry, juicy citrus and pomegranate complexity, melding with pleasing accents of strawberries and cream. This party of flavours is supported by a soft, slippery texture with some finishing grip which preserves the hedonistic sensations while you reach for the next glass.

Enjoy now or over the next 2 years with shared plates of chargrilled octopus, Parmesan & pumpkin arancini, grilled chorizo, Jamon Iberico and crusty bread.
