Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirAll of Fontenille’s wines are made using grapes grown on their estate owned vineyards, it’s Lauris vineyards of 35 stunning hectares are tended with the utmost care using certified organic and sustainable practices that ensure the highest quality grapes.
WinemakingLe Domaine de Fontenille's Cuvée Alphonse wines are something special, with our Makersvine exclusive allocation transported from Provence in temperature controlled shipping. Cuvée wines are blended from specially selected barrels or vats, with Fontenille's Alphonse single varietal fermentation in demi-muids (500 litre barrels, typically used in the Rhône Valley) for the Rosé, and 225 litre oak barrels and concrete vats for the Blanc and Rouge.
TastingIn the winery at Fontenille, we were given the rare experience of tasting the rosé and white wines in tank and older vintage red wines aged in barrel. The fine flavours we encountered even before the wines were ready for bottling made us determined to bring this perfect taste of Provence to Australia. A generous and nicely structured wine, with notes of peach, honey and dried fruits.
Makers MatchA refined wine, great with seafood, white meats, superb with baked cheeses.
