Tari Family 2017 Domaine de la Begude Bandol Rose
We love a light, crisp, refreshing and elegant Rose as much as the next guy or gal, but the Roses of Bandol aren't your typical poolside quaffers. These are seriously big and complex wines, just mere minutes of additional skin contact away from being a full blown red (i.e. a real DAD-style Rose). This rose from mostly Mourvèdre with small amounts of Cinsault and Grenache is obtained by direct pressing and is fermented in stainless steel followed by malolactic fermentation that provides a round creamy texture. It is fruit forward, dry, powerful and complex.
