Review: 2019 Domaine de Cala Coteaux Varois en Provence

We’ve given the backstory on Provence-based Domaine de Cala before, so won’t repeat ourselves. Today we dig in to the winery’s entry-level rose, a blend of grenache (48%), cinsault (35%), rolle (6%), syrah (5%), carignan (4%), and grenache blanc (2%).

Again, this wine is so pale that it could pass for a white wine. Floral on the nose with hints of grapefruit and lemon, it’s a very fresh example of rose that comes across without all that overbearing berry character that is so common in the style. While dry as a bone on the finish, light notes of lemongrass give it a slightly herbal bent. That said, this is not a complicated rose, but rather a finely-tuned machine that Domaine de Cala has purpose-built for summertime sipping.
