Rosé Wine

100% Grenache/Garnacha

Tasting notes

Pale salmon in colour, this refreshing Provençal style rosé is brimming with fragrant red berry fruit, with notes of cherry, strawberries and raspberries and a hint of dried herbs. The palate is fresh with crisp acidity and a smooth finish.

Vinyards

The vineyards are located on low lying hills with the Bassin de Thau, a string of lakes which moderate the climate. There is little rain in the summer and the gentle breezes from the lakes and Mediterranean lower evaporation and reduce vine stress.

Vinification

The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning and gently pressed in a pneumatic press under CO2 in order to retain the fresh, primary fruit flavours. The wine was fermented slowly in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 15° C. After fermentation, the wine was racked off its lees and tartrate stability occurred naturally over the winter. Malolactic fermentation was not allowed to occur.

Producer

Monrouby is a small village in the Languedoc, close to Pomérols, which is where the Baron de Badassière and the Vignes de l'Eglise wines are made. Winemaker Graeme Paul was impressed with the fruit from this village in 2011, so decided from then on to vinify several varieties separately.
