About This Wine
What do Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat have in common?
Although quite different in size, all are seaside communities of Provence, and all provide numerous opportunities for overlooking the water — whether it’s the old port area of Marseille, the fishing boats and yachts of Cassis, or La Ciotat’s long stretch of beaches — while savoring a refreshing glass of rosé.
If you aren’t planning a Provence expedition anytime soon, the Central Coast of California provides a scenic alternative. Thanks to the winemaker at Seacrest, that scenery can be soaked in with a delicious bottle of rosé.
The 2016 vintage is made from equal parts Sangiovese and Malbec. The Sangiovese grapes were grown in Monterey, and give the blend its brightness and acidity. The Malbec comes from Paso Robles, and imparts a fruitful quality and full flavors. Fresh and dry (but not bone dry), it’s a delicious taste of Provence by way of California.
