Wine Critic Reviews for 2020 Hampton Water Rose

Lovely top notes of peony and baby's breath grace the bouquet of this rosé, with supporting notes of ripe melon, white cherry and strawberry at the core. The palate is medium in weight but well balanced, with a sweet orange flavor and bright acidic thread that keeps the momentum moving from the fruit-fueled palate to the vibrant, refreshing finish.

Region Languedoc: Located in southern France, Languedoc is one of the largest wine regions in this country and it covers the land between the region of Provence and the Spanish border. It's no wonder over a third of French wines are made right here. Languedoc has a long history that dates back to ancient Greeks, which makes it one of the oldest wine regions in France, too. Today, Languedoc wines are considered to be some of the highest-quality wines in the world that successfully keep the tradition alive while fulfilling the demands of the international market.

Languedoc's rich offer has any wine you could ever think of. From more rustic, traditionally made wines to those with more contemporary characteristics, any wine enthusiast could find a perfect bottle for themselves. Some of the most delightful whites are made of Chardonnay, but other varieties such as Mauzac or Chenin blanc are also cultivated in this region. Among commonly used red varieties you could find Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, and plenty of others. Some of them feature an enjoyable nutty taste, while others are marvelously sweet. Of course, if you happen to find yourself in Languedoc, you shouldn't leave until you have a glass of Cremant de Limoux - a sophisticated sparkling wine typical for this exceptional region.
Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Type of Wine Rose: Rose wine is a versatile drink that involves letting the grape juice soak with the skins for several days, before being allowed to ferment properly. The resulting liquid achieves a beautiful color, ranging from a sweet honey orange to a playful purple hue, adding some color variety to your collection.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: Proprietary Blend is a general term used to indicate that a wine is comprised of multiple grape varietals which are either “proprietary” to the winery or is blended and does not meet the required maximum or minimum percentage of a particular varietal. This also is the case for the grape’s place of origin, especially for region, appellation or vineyard designated wines. There are endless examples of blended wines which are labeled as “Proprietary Blend” and in conjunction with each region’s stipulated wine laws and regulations makes for a vast blanket for wines to fall into. Perhaps the simplest example is California; if a wine is to be labeled as Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it is required to have at least 75% of the varietal (Cabernet Sauvignon) and 85% of the fruit must be cultivated from the Napa Valley wine district. If the wine does not meet the requirements, it is then labeled as Proprietary Blend.
