Vine yard

The vines are ideally located in Tautavel area, between Mediterranean Sea and Pyrenees Mountains, 30 kilometres north of Perpignan in the South of France area. The dry and sunny terroir enables Grenache, the emblematic grape variety of the Mediterranean, to express its best aromas. The soils in the vineyard have predominantly clay- limestone content.

Wine making

A manual harvest was followed immediately by gentle pressing of the grapes. The must was transferred under a protective carbonic gas atmosphere, prior to fermentation. Fermentation then took place at low temperatures of between 15° to 18°C, in stainless steel vats. The wine was matured on the fine lees for several weeks adding complexity and texture to the final wine.

Tasting Note

The palest of salmon pinks; this is a wonderfully pure, fresh flavoured wine with delightful red berry aromatics. The red fruit characters are echoed on the palate, which has a slight sparkle giving the wine its lovely freshness and fruity vibrancy through to an elegant and mineral finish.

  1. Paul

    If you love Rose you’ll love this. A light clean rose, but not sweet like some . I paired in wine flight with tapas goes so well with cheese, roll on the summer enjoy easy drink

  2. Natalie

    I sometimes find Rose too sweet, especially with food, but this was perfect. It was clean and fresh and very drinkable. I paired it with a paella eaten in the garden – highly recommended!

  3. Jessica Burton

    I absolutely loved this wine – so much so I’m extremely tempted to buy the magnum. It’s light and refreshing and perfect for a summers day! It tastes like you’re living the high life and I couldn’t believe the quality for the price!
