Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rose
Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rose is Gosling’s choice for Chef Peter’s snapper recipe. This French wine is a soft, delicate, salmon pink colour. The bouquet has subtle hints of peach, rose petals and soft pepper on the nose. It is dry, round and full of finesse.

The wine is surprisingly complex, with intriguing notes of raspberries, cherries and fennel.

The retail price is $18.50 and it’s available at Lindo’s and Gosling’s stores.
