Do you find that most rose wines available are just too red and just to sickly sweet to be enjoyable. I have avoided them for some time but my interest was re-awakened on a recent trip to Vienna.
Vienna is a truly beautiful and grand city but it’s cuisine is a bit of a let down. If you like pizza or wiener schnitzel its heaven but if you crave for something a little different it’s rather difficult to find something of interest.
After about 90 mins of walking up and down the streets of the old town one evening we stumbled across a gem. It’s called Le Bol and it is a simple bistro type place serving food all day on communal tables.
It was a humid, hot evening so I ordered a chilled glass of provincal rose, another 5 glasses and a plateau de fromage later I was a convert. The service was very attentive, all I had to do was lightly touch the rim of my glass and another one appeared always filled slightly more than the last. They certainly knew how to keep their customers happy.
On my return home I ordered several bottles of Mas de Cadenet Sainte from Vineyards Direct at £8.95 each. It’s a beautiful Peachy colour, dry but with just a hint of sweetness. Perfect !
