K&L Notes

The Union de Vingerons de l'Ile de Beaute (UVIB) is an association of growers on the island of Corsica based near the town of Aléria. Their Terra Santa Rosé is 100% Sciaccarellu, a grape native to the island. It is pale pink with crisp berry fruit, notes of white raspberry and strawberry. The beauty of Corsican rosés is the intensity and texture of the wines. Discover the region with this terrific value.

The delight in drinking many rosés, apart from their attractive price, lies in their versatility, the ability to work the table with a wide array of dishes, leaving palates refreshed and invigorated. Under the radar Corsican rosés, crafted from obscure native grapes like ‘Sciaccarellu’ could win a spelling bee, but they also prove that crisp texture, lovely acidity and enticing red fruits can charm anyone. Proof that the right choice is often neither red nor white, but pink!

I discovered this fun little Rose last year and I am so happy its back! Bright and fresh with great texture and notes of crisp red fruits, this is a must for picnics, parties or Sunday afternoon sipping!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
