Saint Sidoine

Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault

Côtes de Provence

13.5 Alcohol

Introduction

Located in southeastern France, Côtes de Provence is the largest appellation in Provence. 85% of wine produced in Côtes de Provence is rosé, consisting mainly of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. These are the three varietals that comprise the Saint Sidoine blend. The Saint Sidoine cuvée uses the body and red berries of Grenache as the base with the other grapes as secondary fruit flavours. Each varietal is fermented separately and then blended in a process called "assemblage." The 2012 has won multiple awards in French competitions, and appears on many boutique eateries' wine lists. The Saint Sidoine was recently featured in the Calgary Herald (June 14, 2013) as one of several exceptional, value priced roses. The Herald also notes to not be fooled by the delicate colour; the wine is bold and can be paired with almost any summer feast. Serve this summer at 10 degrees Celsius.


How it looks

Beautiful Champagne pink in colour, or 'piglet' if you prefer.

How it smells

Strawberries, raspberries, melons and peaches. As the wine warms in your glass, faint mineral and perfume notes appear.

How it tastes

A very dry rosé, somewhat shocking if you do not know what to expect. Light cherries, raspberries and tart apples. There is very little residual sugar, with a crisp acidity and long finish. The fruit is secondary to the minerality and mouth watering acidity.

Recommended food pairing

We concur with the Calgary Herald. Pair it with a cucumber and tomato salad with fresh basil and sea salt. It would also match perfectly with a seafood salad.
