2016 Chateau de Roquefort Corail Cotes de Provence Rose
The parcels for the rose are always the same, but the combination is always different. 30% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Cinsault. 10% Carignan, 10% Vermentino, 5% Clairette. The wine was produced through direct pressing, partially destemmed. Certain varieties went through a cold maceration for 8 to 24 hours before being pressed. Cold clarification and natural fermentation between 64 and 73F. Gravitational work in the cellar as often as possible.
“Corail” is the domaine’s rose and it has classic Provencal characteristics. Pale coral color with a delicately spicy nose of citrus fruits, lively on the palate with notes of white fruits, citrus and a hint of fennel. Clean and refreshing finish.
