SKU: 880096

The Domaine Saint-Férréol estate, family owned since 1720, is situated deep in the countryside of Var, overlooking the vast plains of Pontevès, at the foot of the Bessillons peaks in Provence. Coteaux Varois en Provence is the smallest appellation in Provence, the most mountainous and furthest from the sea.The soil is clay-limestone which produces fresh, fruity wine. The varietals of the 2016 Rosé are Grenache (40%), Syrah (25%) Cinsault (15%) Carignan (15%) and Ugni-Blanc (5%).

Tasting Notes: “Bright pink coral color. Fresh, fruity aromas of strawberry, kiwi, petite fours, and honeyed rice cake with a crisp, dry medium body and an interesting, medium-long kiwi, cherry stem, peach mango yogurt, and basil finish with clunky, chewy, fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A fresh, fruity, and tropical rose that will shine at the table.” Traditional vinification at low temperature allows optimal extraction of aromas creating an intense nose of red fruits (wild strawberries and raspberry) and citrus (orange) wrapped in a classic pastel pink colour. All with a soft mouth feel offering freshness and aromatic persistence in the spirited soul of this dry rosé with tangy flavours of white currants. Presented in a satin finish bottle.

Accolades: 

Barb Philip, BCLD Category Manager, MW: “ “Provence rosé is considered to be the finest pink wine in the world and the producers that make it are specialists. The vineyards are in the south of France and most of them are dedicated to making only rosé. Expect a very pale colour that ranges from salmon to dusty pink. The wine is always dry with delicate citrus, red fruits and wet stone flavours.”
