This is a peppery, soft rosé of Cinsault from Château Puech Redon of southern France's Languedoc.
Tasting Notes: Strawberries, garrigue (classically herbal and peppery), and some bright honeycrisp apple to the palate. A (vitally!) complex expression of Cinsault rosé, and still somehow carries the light body you'd expect of a Languedoc summer rosé. Truly perfect for summer's golden hour.
Vinification: 100% Cinsault hand-harvested from east-facing vines grown in a softly-pitched clay-limestone hillside riddled with garrigue. Whole-bunch directly-pressed, the grapes are then cooled. Spontaneous fermentation with only the help of native yeasts (no temp. control) takes place before a young bottling where the wine is given some time to shake off bottle shock prior to release. Unfined, very lightly filtered, with minimal SO2.
