Domaine Horgelus Rose is made from grapes that were picked at night, an old trick in hotter climes for keeping everything fresh. An intense and complex bouquet of sweet wild strawberries, citrus fruits and fresh, juicy blackcurrants lead into a smooth and thirst-quenching palate with notes of wild herbs and a citrussy acidity.

This Gascon pink from Domaine Horgelus puts dark-skinned and rather austere Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat with supple, easy-going Merlot. Of course, in rosé form this makes an exuberantly fruity wine, solidly dry but nicely full on the palate.

John Wilson writing in The Irish Times:
A delicious refreshing light rosé, brimming with lightly textured ripe strawberry fruits. Perfect on its own, with salads or grilled white meats.

Liam Campbell writing in The Irish Independent:
Pungent herbs and fresh basil leaves. Berry juicy and fruity with a herbal tone. Needs robust food - beef burgers with a spicy tomato relish.
