Marrenon’s grapes are picked at night to ensure fresh, delicate flavours
The glorious August Bank Holiday heatwave just goes to show – summer ain’t over yet! And we at Taste of France think there’s no better way to cool down than with a crisp, aromatic glass of rosé.
Great minds obviously think alike, as Marrenon, one of the largest wine producers in the South of France’s Luberon and Ventoux regions, has made sure British customers can get their mitts on its elegant Roséfine – available at Oddbins in both magnum and standard sizes.
Roséfine’s strong character and fresh yet delicate finish is the result of the grapes being taken from the vine at night-time, would you believe? This, combined with an oxygen-free wine-making environment, helps capture and preserve the wine’s special aromas.
Fanny Sucré, from Marrenon, says: “By picking when the grape is cool, the fruit remains clean and fresh, which we are then able to maintain throughout the winemaking process. We believe when you blend quality wine like this with a good price and magnum format that the UK wine buyers will see they are buying a product that punches well above its weight for the price.”
Roséfine is a blend of grenache noir, syrah and merlot. The wine has a pale pink colour with salmon hues, showing notes of citrus fruits and a touch of floral. Roséfine has a strong character, elegant and refined with a long and fresh, yet delicate finish. It is ideally paired with fresh fruit or a Niçoise salad.
Roséfine IGP Méditeranée is available at Oddbins nationwide. Visit www.marrenon.com for more information.
