Élodie Les Tongs Vin de Pays du Var 2014


This rosé from Domaine de Cantarelle is a Vin de Pays du Var, which becomes Var IGP (an indication géographique protegée) as of 2014, and is situated in the south of France 50 kilometres from beautiful Aix-en-Provence.  There's a really interesting wine education here just decoding a few label terms!  The rosé is a blend of syrah and cinsault and the estate itself is located 310 metres above sea level in hilly surrounds.  A pale salmon pink in the glass, this lighter style of rosé has typical regional rosé characters of roses, florals and strawberries.
