Description

Bordertown is blessed with premier plantings of Cabernet Franc, and we have diverted some of these to the production of a classic French Provence style rosé. Starting with a light pink colour, the aromas are of ripe melon and strawberries. These are followed through on the palate with bright citrus, luscious red fruits and watermelon. The profile is subtle and harmonious, and it is supported by a crisp dry backbone. This is a delicious rose that’s at home with summertime BBQ and as a delightful sipper on a back patio.

    Bordertown has a wealth of Cabernet Franc vines, enabling them to divert a few to a rosé that winemaker Daniel Bontorin (also of Seven Directions) says is made in the classic French Provence style. The colour is Provençal pale pink, the aromas melon and strawberries that spill across the palate. The texture is not quite Provençal, but then again, neither is the price. The finish, however, is crisp and dry, making it easy to drain the bottle quickly. A great match could be rice dishes, spot prawns, goat cheese, summer style salads, or mussels.
