Coeur de Cardeline Provence Rosé, 2018
The wine of Provence is quintessentially rosé: a paler shade of pink, full of joy, freshness and bright fruit - the depth of flavor provided by Grenache, the zing by Cinsault.
70% Grenache, 30% Cinsault
|How it's made||
From vineyards in the golden triangle of the central valley of Côtes de Provence, separated from the Mediterranean by the Maure Mountains. Both grape varieties are trained on wires to allow air into the vineyards in order to prevent the onset of diseases. The vines grown on rich clay soil which retain moisture during months of April to September when there is reduced or no rainfall. The canopy is also shaded from the hot Mediterranean sun. Grapes are machine harvested late August to early September. Grapes are de-stemmed and loaded straingt into the press to extract a pale pink color, the best of the aroma and flavor from just under the skin. The must is clarified overnight, inoculated and fermented in low temperatures for a week to ten days. The wine is then racked to prevent any malolactic fermentation in order to retain the fresh natural acidity in the wine.
This is a perfect pale pink wine that is very drinkable. Delicate with lovely sweet fruit from the Grenache grapes. The nose is perfumed with pretty ripe berry characters. Fresh and fruity with a delicate finish.
Serve chilled, ideal with seafood, Mediterranean dishes or just by itself.
