We covered the Perrin family last time, along with their French winemaking company which includes the noted Château de Beaucastel of the Rhône Valley. The La Vieille Ferme label - it means "the old farm" - houses a bubbly rosé as well as a very nice still rosé wine.
La Vieille Ferme Rosé 2018
This cheap pink wine was vinified in stainless steel before bottling. the grapes - Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah - were grown "high on the slopes," but the winery does not say where those slopes are. Alcohol clicks in at 13% abv and the price tag sits below $10.
This 2018 bargain rosé is light salmon pink in the glass. The nose shows red fruit with herbal notes. There is plenty of fruit on the palate, strawberry and cherry, with a light minerality and easy acidity. The finish is short, but fruity.
