The Aude Valley, stretching between Carcassonne and the Pyrenees in extreme south of France, is similar in climate and Limestone soil to the Loire Valley. The high altitude and cooling evening breezes creates wines with varietal character, acidity and freshness like this elegant Rosé with light berry and candied fruit drop flavours.

Oak

Colour

Very pale pink.

Nose

The nose is aromatic and expressive with aromas of strawberries and rose petal perfume.

Palate

The palate is light and delicate, displaying elegant light berry and candied fruit drop flavours matched by savoury complexity before lingering long on a soft, dry finish.

Background

Fruit from the Gers region, in the centre of southern France provides a core of vibrant and expressive fruit with impressive depth whilst the high altitude, cool climate Aude Valley fruit provides lifted aromatics, savoury complexity and bright, fresh acidity. Completely whole bunch fermented with a short maceration (a few hours) sufficient to impart colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice is given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment at very low temperature to almost complete dryness. Maturation on less in stainless steel adds texture and malo-lactic fermentation is prevented to ensure vibrancy. A very warm and dry vintage with noticeably low yields exacerbated by frosts in early Spring. The conditions continued with just enough relief via light showers before a very early and compounded harvest that had vignerons scrambling. Whilst a famous vintage for red wines, 2016 was a well above average vintage for Rosé with rich flavours and impressive concentration and length.
