Description

"Bright, fresh and fragrant, the attractive bouquet shows white stone fruit, rockmelon, lemon zest and water melon characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is juicy and lively. The wine is pristine and inviting with refreshing fruit flavours and a lingering crisp finish. At its best: now to 2018" Sam kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017

"Bright, even, light pink colour with some depth and slight purple hues on the rim. The nose is softly presented with fresh and delicate aromas of red florals and red berry fruits, showing subtle red currant notes, and gentle mineral elements, forming a finely concentrated, but rounded core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is bright and vigorous with aromatic flavours of red florals, redcurrants and berry fruits, and mineral nuances. The mouthfeel features crisp acidity and mouthwatering, fine-textured phenolics. The wine flows with some grip, leading to a dry, textural, thirst-quenching finish. This is a vigorous dry rosé, with floral and berry fruit flavours and thirst-quenching mineral notes on a crisp palate with dry grip. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, pressed for ther osé style, cool-fermented to13.0%alc., the wine aged 3-4 months on lees in tank" Raymond Chan, July 2017

Clear bright rose petal colour in the glass. The nose is floral with a fresh red berry note. The Palate is clean on entry with nice acid balance, which is full, enhanced by notes of white-fleshed fruit.

The Grenaches are grown on clay and limestone soils mainly facing directly East, while the Cinsaults are planted on the plain in predominantly sandy soils. 100% pressed rosé. The musts under go very little racking in order to develop the wine’s volume yet maintain its freshness. Balance is the golden rule. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperature for 15 days and then the wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel or concrete vats for 3-4 months. Ideal serving temperature is between 10-12c.

Food Pairing: This beautiful summer drop will enhance any summer cuisine such as fresh crisp salads or a BBQ.
