We're forever being approached by customers, fresh from holiday in southern France where they've lazed away the balmy summer evenings sipping dry rosés such as Tavel or Cabernet d’Anjou. Naturally, they want to keep the romance alive for as long as possible, and so seek similar wines back home. Unfortunately, the balancing act that French rosé achieves has rarely been emulated by winemakers from other world wine regions. Australian rosés tend to be very fruity with more than a little sweetness on the finish.

Portet has produced a delightful, French inspired rose...
Enter Dominique Portet, the son of André Portet, régisseur (vineyard & winery manager) of one of Bordeaux's most prestigious vineyards, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac. Portet has produced a delightful, French inspired rose, made from a blend of Cabernet, Merlot & Shiraz, sourced from vineyards located in the Yarra Valley and the Pyrenees. Tasting note: Translucent salmon pink colour with pale damask mauve hue. Subtle aromas of confectionary, cherry and strawberry. The palate displays excellent weight with a creamy like texture. Flavours of ripe cherry, raspberry and confectionary with some spice end notes. Clean crisp dry finish with long aftertaste of cherry, ripe raspberry and confectionary. An excellent flavour filled Rose. Try with goats cheese, ham or smoked salmon (Portet suggests anything Thai).
