Winemaster's View

This is an IGP wine so not from a classic appellation. It is sourced from close to the Camargue in the south of France. Caladoc (a cross between Grenache and Malbec) is combined with Syrah in this delicate, perfumed and subtle rosé wine. With fresh acidity allied with bright red berry and currant fruits, Allusion is similar to many Provence Rosé’s but at a much lower price. Perfect summer drinking. - Andy Howard MW

About the Wine

Attilon is located on the eastern bank of the Rhône river on the border between the Rhône region and Provence.

Undoubtedly, the style is more akin to a delicate Provence Rosé than the heftier wines from further north. The estate is planted on deep, sandy, well-drained soils that combine with the warm summer temperatures for an even growing cycle.

‘Allusion’ is characterised by subtle red berry fruit characters, floral notes on the nose and crisp, lively acidity. The absence of pests and adverse weather conditions has allowed the estate to produce this rosé as an organic wine

Goes well with

Rosé wines like this are fantastic aperitif wines for sipping all Spring and Summer long. With bright red berry notes, fresh acidity and floral perfume, this will be highly popular with nearly all wine lovers.

The wine has the body to accompany all types of fish, along with lighter meats such as pork and chicken.
