Les Vignes de L'Eglise, Rosé de Syrah IGP Côtes de Thau, 2019
£ 9.45, 75 cl

Rosé Wine

100% Syrah/Shiraz

Fresh and vibrant, this modern, well-made wine has lively red fruit characters with hints of strawberry and cassis.

Tasting notes

This rosé is pale pink in colour and exhibits a delicate perfume of red fruits with notes of strawberry and redcurrant. The vibrant palate is well balanced by fresh acidity and a rounded structure.

Vinyards

The vines are located on clay-limestone terraces which overlook the Etang de Thau - the largest of a string of lagoons that stretch along the French coast from the Rhône River to the foothills of the Pyrenées. They enjoy a Mediterranean climate, tempered by maritime influences given the proximity to the Etang de Thau. These cooling coastal breezes, coupled with the sunny, warm climate, ensure that the grapes ripen with the optimum balance between ripe fruit flavours and freshness and aromatics. The grapes are both machine and hand-harvested.

Vinification

Skin-contact maceration lasted for several hours during the filling phase of the pneumatic press. The juice was cold settled for 48 hours at 8°c, followed by a lengthy and slow fermentation under strict temperature-controlled conditions (15° C). The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation.

Producer

The Vignes de L’Eglise wines are made exclusively for Liberty Wines by Matt Thomson and Alana McGettigan at the excellent Cave de Pomérols co-operative in the Picpoul de Pinet region. Influenced by breezes off the Mediterranean coast, the area around Pomérols is cooler than much of the rest of the Languedoc.
