UP 2019

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.

A perfect wine to take to a BBQ and serve with grilled chicken and vegetable skewers. The spice notes will compliment roasted meats and classic Mediterranean flavors like Greek Souvlaki or charcuterie.

WINE INFORMATION

Set in wild countryside and bordered by a vast evergreen oak forest, the Ultimate Provence vineyard is characterised by shallow soil, laid on a waterproof subsoil sandstone slab. This excellent terroir is nourished with a natural compost of oak leaves and vine stalks. The plots are marked out with grassy areas.

Caressing in feel, with a rounded edge to the mix of peach, mango and white raspberry fruit. A light mineral hint gives this just enough tension on the finish. Drink now.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator

Extremely pale, vivid pink. Bright, racy and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry and orange zest scents and a suave floral overtone. Dry and light on its feet, offering tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors and a tangerine quality that builds as the wine opens up. Shows strong, minerality cut on the finish, which lingers with strong, floral-driven tenacity.
