Superbly luminous pale pink. The nose is fruity and floral, with rose, white flowers (peach, apricot blossom), and wild strawberry. Menthol and aniseed notes add to the harmony of the aromatic palette. In the mouth it is incredibly well balanced and deliciously fresh and vivacious, with lovely citrus aromas and a touch of liquorice on the finish. A rosé of pure pleasure in the flush of its youth, but one that will maintain all its grace for the next two to three years.

Terroir

Clay-limestone. Typically Mediterranean climate, warm and sunny with light rainfall. Warm winters, hot summers and regular periods of dry weather mean that the grapes ripen perfectly.

Vinification

The grapes are picked at night, in two sessions. The first harvest is just before the grapes are fully ripe, to keep freshness in the wine, then the second picking happens two weeks later, to get good concentration and varietal character. The grapes are destemmed then macerated for six hours at 5°C. Fermentation is at a controlled temperature of 17°C. The fine lees are added back to the wine at racking to add more structure on the palate. No malolactic fermentation.

Ageing

Stainless steel tank.
