Alkimi Le Mistral Rosé 2015



This is an impressive Rhône style rosé from Alkimi.  It's made using the saignée method, and is rather humbly described by its winemaker Stuart Dudine as a wine created by necessity.  I would say necessity has been kind then, because I think this is a very good rosé.  From grenache, syrah and roussanne, but mostly grenache, it has aromatics of strawberry and nectarines.  The palate has a viscous texture and a lovely balance to it.  This is easy to recommend.
