Maison Saleya, Cotes de Provence Rose 2019 750ML
Cotes de Provence, Provence, France Rose
About the Wine: Maison Saleya is crafted from grapes grown at the foot of Montagne Sainte-Victoire in Provence. This unique terroir features abundant sunshine that is moderated by Provence’s famous Mistral winds. Prime plots supply grapes of good maturity and low yield, and the granitic, schisty soil and proximity to the ocean impart great character to the fruit. The grapes are sorted and destemmed before undergoing cold maceration up to one full day. Fermentation lasts up to seven days at a carefully controlled 62.6°F, which preserves its fruity aromas. As is traditional in the Côtes de Provence, each variety is vinified separately and is then blended for ideal balance and character. Grenache lends subtle red fruit, fullness and intensity while Cinsault contributes freshness and balance to the blend.
Beautiful light rose-salmon color with aromas of ripe tropical fruit, revealing accents of tangerine and hints of ginger. The palate is broad and rich, with well-spiced flavors of raspberry, currant, and dark cherry. The finish is long and rich. Serve chilled, and enjoy.
