In Provence, the production of Rosé has always been an art, a way of life. The climate, terroirs, grapes all come together to provide this very special wine. The beautiful Var region of Provence was the very first area in France to produce rosé wine. It is also one of the oldest wine regions in France with original vines planted in 600 BC, when the Phoenicians arrived.
The grapes were grown in jurassic limestone, marl and cretaceous sandstone soils. The grapes are mechanically harvested in September in the early morning. Maceration of the grapes in stainless streel tanks for 2 to 20 hours in controlled cool temperatures of around 16 C. The grapes are then then pressed and fermented at low temperatures to maintain freshness and aromas.
A blend of Grenache 40%, Cinsault 30%, Syrah 20%, Rolle 5% and a small amount of other local grapes. This deliciously refreshing rosé shows aromatic flavours of strawberries and white flowers. Light, dry and so fresh on the palate, this is the wine to savour on warm summer days.
