An elegant, fresh and crisp rosé from Morocco with the delicate hue of a Provençal Pink.
When it comes to wine Morocco is certainly off the beaten track, but when you take into account its French cultural connections and that parts of the country have great growing conditions there's every reason to expect good stuff to emerge from there. Domaine de la Zouina is, in fact, French owned and run and they do make some terrific, and not expensive, wines. Made from a blend of Caladoc, Mourvèdre and Marselan this rosé is stylistically quite southern French in character and has the delicate, pale colouring you'd see from Provence. It's got fresh and crisp peachy aromas with some bright red fruit flavours and a subtle touch of florality and minerality on the palate.
When to drink:
Zesty and bright, it's perfect, nicely chilled, just by itself, or drink it with a Mediterranean Mezze platter
