Palest pink in color from minimal skin contact. Bright aromas of cotton candy, fresh squeezed orange juice, and juicy white peach. This crisp rosé tastes like a fruit salad, with a medley of ripe summer fruit flavors and zippy acidity. This is a perfectly refreshing wine for all spring and summer long.
We harvested these grapes early in the season specifically for rosé, when they had relatively low sugar (brix) and high acidity, to produce a crisp and bright style of wine typical of Provence in the South of France. We pressed the whole clusters lightly and slowly straight to tank, so the juice picked up just a touch of pink from the minimal skin contact.
We fermented the grape juice as cold as possible, to retain all the fresh character, with a yeast selection containing native yeast strains that encourages a subtle complexity in the profile. We let the wine complete a partial secondary malolactic fermentation, adding a touch of creaminess on the palate to balance the acidity. We racked the finished wine and held it cold in stainless steel tank until bottling.
Held in stainless steel tank until bottling. This wine was not aged in oak because that would have masked the beautifully fresh characteristics of the wine.
Provence style rosé pairs with a wide variety of light salads and hors d’oeuvres. Rosé is the perfect wine to pair with brunch, lighter seafood dishes like poached salmon, sushi, or crudo. A simple cheese and fresh fruit plate for a light lunch will pair well every day with rosé.
