Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirCertified organic Luberon AOC. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes sourced only from estate owned vineyards with clay and limestone soils, located at the bottom of Luberon mountain.
WinemakingFermented in stainless steel tanks aged over fine lees, this estate bottled rosé is a gorgeous expression of one of the most beautiful areas in Provence.
TastingIn the winery at Fontenille, we were given the rare experience of tasting the 2018 vintage’s 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. One of our 'go to' wines, lightly balanced, yet generous and gourmet, not your typical sweet or over-flavoured rosé. Drink from now to 2 – 3 years. Alcohol 13.5%.
Wine & Food PairingWe love drinking this special rosé as an aperitif. Also great with seafood BBQs; perfect with light to medium cheeses.
