A vibrant, dry, full-flavoured Rosé from the South of France. Hand-harvested, the grapes are gently destemmed, cooled and pressed. All of the Syrah and half of the Cabernet Sauvignon go straight into neutral barrels for primary and malolactic fermentation. The remaining Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in stainless steel tanks and blocked from malolactic fermentation. The two different lots are aged separately for five months and blended prior to bottling.

Wine SpectatorIntense stony notes up front lead to dried tropical fruit and berry flavors. Light and creamy on the finish, with plenty of spice. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastA particularly fresh and refreshing wine, with the cleanest acidity, attractive red fruits and grapefruit juice. A great apéritif style.
