UP - A bold rosé that's distinctly different.
We're proud to introduce the first rosé from the Ultimate Provence estate on the outskirts of St Tropez in the South of France. Called UP and with a unique, bold style, this is an exciting wine that packs something distinctly different.
The beauty of this wine extends from the bottle to the contents. Layers of raspberry, strawberry jam in the nose invite you to a gorgeous, yet spicy palate. A fresh wine with great acidity for food pairing, but roundness to enjoy on its own. If you only have one bottle to bring – this is the ultimate wine for any occasion.
Tasting and Pairing Notes
Color: Star bright in color, vibrant pale pink that has flecks of copper reflections.
Nose: A unique combination of classic Provençal red berries leading to scents of the holidays – pine, cinnamon and gingerbread cookies
Taste: The spice notes from the Syrah provides a dry, white pepper characteristic across the entire palate. A touch of Rolle gives great acidity and brightness that lends notes of winter citrus, spice with a warming finish.
