Château l'Afrique Rosé, Famille Sumeire, Côtes de Provence 2022
"The 2022 Ch. l’Afrique Rosé, from vineyards owned by the Sumeire family for over 70 years, is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and (white) Rolle, aka Vermentino. It’s zesty yet creamy and skilfully balanced with white stone fruit, citrus and redcurrants. Although an excellent aperitif, it has the weight and structure to match many a dish, and Mrs Ray and I knocked it back very happily alongside a fat juicy chicken roasted on a bed of butter beans mushed up with lemon juice, garlic, spinach and parmesan."
