From the foothills of Les Alpilles in Southern France's Provence, vinifying in the idyllic hamlet of St. Rémy de Provence, this is a fresh white-flower aromatics and plummy-palate rosé that turns into a kind of savory-vegetable (think ripe tomatoes) at the back of the palate in the most refreshing manner. A staff favorite!
This is a co-maceration/fermentation of Syrah, Merlot, and Cab Sauv (in the bled, saignée style) hand-harvested from vines grown in blue marl, chalk, and limestone soils. Spontaneous fermentation, ambient yeasts, no temp control. After a 6 month elevage, the wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered with a minimal addition of SO2.
