The colour is bright, pale pink with salmon hues like the Rosé you will find in Provence. The nose is beautifully layered and complex with wild strawberries, rose petals and hints of mandarin orange and citrus blossom. Strawberries carry through on the palate accompanied with honeydew melon and baking spices like nutmeg and cardamom with subtle hints of dill and stone minerality. The finish is long with soft creamy layered flavours and mineral and fresh lingering acidity.
The grapes for this Rosé are carefully selected for their quality and fragrance. The blend is made up of Grenache and Syrah, just like the Rosé wines in Provence. The grapes are picked early so that we can maintain a good alcohol in the final wine. These are transported by a refrigerated truck and go into a cool room when they arrive to get the temperature to about five degrees. The grapes are whole bunch pressed, before being settled and racked into concrete eggs where they undergo a natural fermentation. All the different batches of fruit are kept separate and blended in the end. Malolactic fermentation is allowed to go through and the final wine stays on the lees in concrete eggs for 12-18 months before blended and bottled.
