Winemaking Notes: This Southern French rosé is a blend of ‘saignée’ and directly pressed wine made from 100% free-run juice. To obtain a fresh wine with a strong and vivid color, special care is given to the pre-fermented maceration in the elaboration of both types of wine according to the different grape varieties used in its production. The slow fermentation lasts about four weeks at a stable temperature (16 to 18°). There is no malolactic fermentation.
Tasting Notes: Isle Saint Pierre has produced an exceptional Southern French rosé! It has a lively and fruity nose with hints of red fruit and dried fig, with a lingering, fresh taste with notes of ripe strawberry, raspberry and gooseberry. Pair this wine with cold fish, grilled vegetables or "pieds paquets" (Provencal Speciality).
