Wine Wednesdays - Breezette 2013 Rose

How is it possible it's July already??  'Tis the season for rose!  I enjoyed a Cotes de Provence rose by Breezette while out at the beach this weekend.  Simple, not something that needs to be over thought, the most important part of picking a rose for me is making sure that it is completely dry.  I tend to hedge my bets by picking bottles lighter in color.  A fun name like "Breezette" doesn't hurt either!

This rose was a blend of 80% Cinsault and 20% Mourvedre grapes, very light in style, the nose was full of fresh stone fruit.  Peaches and apricot, carried through in the palette, balanced by crisp acidity and a slight minerality, which made it perfect for enjoying seaside!
