Rosé

REGION: France / Provence
GRAPES: 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Cinsault

These grapes hail from Provence, where vineyard plots overlooking Rousset at the foot of Saint Victoire mountain are influenced by abundant sunshine and Mistral winds. From the best selection of plots amidst the garrigue, these vineyards are known for their maturity and low production. The proximity of the sea, abundant sunshine, and the granitic and schist- specific soil give this wine great character. Grapes are sorted and destemmed, with cold maceration of up to one full day followed by fermentation over 7 days at 63°F to preserve the fruity aromas. The final blend is produced by traditional Côtes de Provence methods, vinifying each grape variety separately, then blending them together for ideal balance and intensity of character. Grenache lends subtle red fruit, fullness and intensity while Cinsault contributes freshness and balance to the blend, and Syrah delivers a deliciously fruity nose.

TASTING NOTE
Brilliant light pink color. Intense scents of raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants with hints of grapefruit and a bright, floral finish. Fresh and lively on the palate with complex red berry and citrus flavors and a lovely, fruity, rounded finish.

FOOD PAIRING
This sophisticated wine is ideal with shellfish, salads, and berry-based dishes or as an aperitif between friends on a warm summer evening.
