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
