Region /Terroir:  AOC Côtes de Provence Cru Classé

Grapes: a complex blend of traditional Provençal varieties: Cinsaut (20%), Shiraz (15%), Grenache (25%) Mouvèdre (25%), Rolle (5%), Tibouren (5%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%)

Alcohol:  13% VOL

Soil:  Slatey and sandy, on a hillside.

Wine making:  The grapes are harvested by machine.  Fermentation occurs in low-temperature stainless steel tanks.

Red wine grapes are used to make rosé.  The colour is mostly the natural colour of the juice, but a brief period of skin contact or maceration can add extra colour.  In Côtes de Provence at least 20% of the wine must be saigneé, which means “bled”.  After crushing the free-run juice is run off after a short pre-fermentation maceration, producing a pale pink wine.

Cellaring potential:  Drink now

Our Tasting notes:  Pale pink, elegant nose with citrus fruits aromas. Supple, fruity, complex with a soft and silky “finale”.

This magnum will add a wow factor to any occasion that it is served at!

Single bottles, multiple bottles or complete boxes (3 x 1500ml bottles) may be ordered.
