I find Rhone reds to be more interesting that most New World wines because they offer flavours that go beyond obvious fruit and vanilla. And they come with a sense of place â€“ the herb covered hills of the south of France. Thereâ€™s also a little mystery â€“ the stuff of Old World red wines.
Perrinâ€™s Rhone is a wonderful combination of traditional â€˜wineynessâ€™, and modern bright, tasty flavours. Medium-bodied, mild-mannered and very gulpable. Invites good times â€“ at the supper table, or the party. Check-it-out before the sale ends. Lightly chill. Handy screw cap.
