Hampton Water Rosé 2019
A light garrigue character sits atop the bouquet of this dainty and pretty rosé, made from 60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Underlying tones suggest white raspberry, currant and strawberry hull. The palate is light and vibrant, with brisk acidity and tangy citrus and tart-berry flavors that lend additional verve and lift through the close.
A joint venture with Bon Jovi, the 2019 Languedoc Rose Hampton Water is a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Medium-bodied, it's a bit richer and weightier than many of its lifestyle competitors, with assertive flavors of red berries, melon and citrus. It's a solid, well-made wine from a label that probably doesn't have to be.
