Pink Sands Rosé
Grenache 50%, Syrah 20%, Cinsault 20% and Vermentino 10% – AOP Coteaux Varois en Provence
A gorgeous pale, dry, rosé that is unmistakably Provençal. Pink Sands has a subtle palate full of rose petals, red fruits and lychee. The Vermentino adds a gentle minerality that combines perfectly with a refreshing acidity and a long finish.
The inspiration for Pink Sands came while sipping rosé, sat on a beach watching the sunset with friends on the famous Harbour Island in the Bahamas. The idyllic beaches shimmer pink, just like the wine in our glasses.
Viticulture and Vinification
The grapes are sourced from a family-owned domain that takes great care in the vineyards, which are situated just shy of 400m above sea level in the heart of the Var in Provence.
Preserving the environment is essential, hence the winery adheres to the Terra Vitis programme – an integrated form of production which is mid-way between organic agriculture and traditional agriculture.
The grapes are harvested during the night when temperatures are cooler, in order to keep sugar levels stable in the grapes. This gives better control over the fermentation process and retains freshness in the grapes. This freshness is enhanced by long, cool fermentation that takes place in stainless steel vats.
