“Aromas of raspberries, lemon rind and hot stones”

Winemaking Notes

Made in the Côtes de Provence in the village of Vidauban in a true Provence Rosé style, this wine is smooth and elegant, a lovely pale copper-salmon color in the glass. Soaring aromas of fresh strawberry, cranberry, watermelon rind and honeysuckle lead into flavors of white peach, Meyer lemon, Kafir lime and hints of jasmine on the palate. The wine shows delightful balance between richness and refreshing acidity through the finish, a testament to the outstanding 2019 vintage in Côtes de Provence.

All grapes went direct to press with minimal skin contact leading to the pale copper-salmon color and smooth, viscous texture. The must was fermented cold, preserving the freshness of floral aromatics and matured in stainless steel, giving vibrant fruit intensity and a long, crisp finish.

“Aromas of raspberries, lemon rind and hot stones” follow through to a medium to full body. Mineral undertones to this. Slightly tannic. A blend of 40% grenache, 40% cinsault, 15% syrah, 2.5% carignan and 2.5% mourvedre. Like the form here. Drink or hold.”
