  • Crunch apple
  • Raspberry
  • Persistent finish

“Bright and lifted, the elegantly expressed bouquet shows crunchy apple, raspberry, nectarine and subtle floral aromas with a hint of savoury undertone. The palate offers excellent focus and flow, together with fine texture and vibrant acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2020

Created by two Masters of Wine, this is southern French Rose at its finest.

A pale salmon pink wine, refreshing and fruity, with delicate red fruits such as strawberry and raspberry.

It is often said that there are more people who have travelled to space than there are Masters of Wine, and while that may be very true, there are many more MW's than there are cosmic cats. In a uniquely Gallic surge of innovation, 1963 witnessed France entering the feline space race via a cat named Félicette. Now Masters of Wine Fergal Tynan and Giles Cook have created a wine that pays homage to those that think outside the box, Félicette is for all those who dream to be a little different.

Grenache vines are planted on the plains and foothills of Languedoc in the south of France, between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea. The area benefits from two distinctive climates that allow the production of a large diversity and styles of wines: the Mediterranean climate for ripe and juicy wines and the Atlantic climate around Carcassonne for more structured and mineral wines. Clay - limestone soils, vines trained Cordon de Royat, and a plant density of between 4000 and 5000 vines/ha with yields of 75 hl/ha.The wine benefits from a period of skin contact and maceration. Pressing of the grapes is carried out in a pneumatic press with separation of free-run juice from pressed must. Cold static must settling then a settling on the fine lees with stirring to highlight the richness of the wine. The wines are then racked off the lees to prevent malolactic fermentation.

Food Pairing: Perfect with salads, shellfish, grilled fish, white meats in creamy sauce.
