Pink Sands Rosé
Grenache 100% – IGP Pays d’Oc
The flavour profile is very much on the ripe red fruits such as wild strawberry and redcurrant with subtle notes of cherry blossom. Our rosé is extremely pale, dry, and has a well structured, round body. A truly delicious, easy drinking summer rosé.
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 balance of well tended, modern vineyards and old bush vines in arid garrigue. The Grenache grapes are harvested early in the morning to retain maximum freshness. These are quickly de-stemmed and direct pressed (pneumatic press) to gently extract the colour. The juice then undergoes a cool fermentation (12-14°C) which lasts just under three weeks.
Although this is a 100% Grenache rosé, each Grenache plot is vinified separately and then carefully blended together.
