Wine of the Week: Saint André de Figuière Cuvée Magali Rosé 2012

April 4th, 2013


Magali smIn the southwest corner of France is the beautiful sunny, seaside region called Provence.  Some of the finest rose wines in the world are produced here; among them a small family owned vineyard known as Saint André de Figuère.

The long hours of sunshine, the longest in France, along with the thermal buffer from the sea air, allows for around 10 different grape varieties to cultivate and ripen here superbly.   Magali is made from a blend of four grapes: Cabernet, Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault.  It has a gorgeous transparent salmon pink color and offers a flattering bouquet of citrus fruits and red fruit.  Evoking apricot and grapefruit well balanced alongside light minerality and acidity in mouth.  It is a perfect wine for a warm afternoon or paired with white pasta, roasted herb chicken, or a mushroom risotto.
