IN THE CELLAR
The hand-harvested grapes were whole bunch pressed directly to tank and inoculated. After a “dirty fermentation” (without any settling of the juice) at 15°C, the wine was racked off its lees, filtered to clarify and bottled.
Crafted from 100% Petit Verdot, this fresh and lively rosé is packed with bright red berry and watermelon flavors, with delicate floral notes that shine through on the refreshingly dry finish.
