Winemaker

"Cinsault lives in a world between categories; it is a red grape that is often too light in color to bottle alone, but can really shine when it's grown to be a Rosé. With aromatics worthy of a perfume and a lean, crisp body, this is the wine I want to drink in a garden surrounded by sunshine and roses!"

Tasting notes

With aromas and flavors of watermelon, white peach, marzipan and spring flowers, this is a textbook Provençal-style rosé. The body is medium and has a crisp, vibrant finish with just a hint of lemon peel.

Production notes

This Dry Rosé was made from 100% Cinsault. Grape clusters were picked at 20 brix, in order to capture as much bright acid and fresh fruit flavors as possible. It was destemmed and left to sit on the skins for just over 13 hours (a stark comparison to our average 30 minute soak for our Rosé of Syrah!) We then pressed it at low pressure for around 2.5 hours. Fermentation took place in 100% stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. Bottling took place in January, 2019. 

Other notes

We're thinking summer here, so imagine this wine with tomato, watermelon, and mint skewers, or grilled grouper with watermelon salsa. If you want to get a bit more decadent, think about your favorite duck dish or a cornish game hen.


When to drink: Enjoy now and often!
