In stock: Available
A classic Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, we hand-select the grapes from our vieilles vignes with an average age of 50 years old. By harvesting at night, we preserve the freshness of the wine and a short cold-maceration for the must in contact with the skins imparts the enticing pale shade of pink.
Fermentation is carried out in cuvees of each variety to enhance expression of their own unique personalities. The Grenache is aged on the lees and stirred regularly to instil the creamy quality to the wine, while the Syrah is racked and separated from the lees to maintain freshness and build length. The subtle fragrant aromas from the Cinsault give a delicate finesse to the rose that continues from start to finish.
We blend at the start of January and the three cuvees were then aged together for seven weeks before bottling at the end of February. Sealed with a Vinolock glass closure, we encourage you to use the bottle again once the wine has been polished off (we know it won't take long given how it tastes!)
Light salmon pink in colour and crisp, fresh and fruity, the rose is a singing tribute to Provence. Deliciously quaffable on a warm afternoon or the perfect accompaniment to a salad Nicoise - the wine epitomises the South of France and the long sunny days from this very special part of theworld.
Beautifully balanced, it boasts affluent stone fruit aromas of white peach and grapefruit combined with an underlying essence of crushed strawberries and Provencal herbs. The smooth and creamy texture sits in harmony with a steely minerality leading to a long, refreshing, lingering finish
