A complex blend of grape varieties all grown in the sandy and schistous soils of the Saint Tropez Peninsula. The grapes are chilled as soon as they arrive at the winery and the juice is given a very short maceration on the grape skins to give a delicate pink hue to the wine. It is then fermented at a cool temperature to preserve the delicate fruit aromas and flavours. Perfect Provence rosé.
Why we like this wine
The Provencal style of rose is so popular these days that so many other areas have tried to copy it. Few have produced anything that will rival the quality of Irresistible Rose from Domaine de la Croix. It's pale colour may make you think that it is light in flavour but nothing could be further from the truth. The big variety of different grape varieties used guarantee a complex palate but crushed berries dominate and the fresh acidity makes it lip-smacking too. You could almost be on the beach in St Tropez.
