Product Description

L’esprit de Provence Rosé

esprit rosé

PRESENTATION

In the heart of Provence, the Faulkner family nurtures their vines on hills that benefit from a unique microclimate and favour hand-picking, optimal expression of the “terroir” and environmentally sustainable farming. Dry and fruity, this rosé will seduce you with its tender, elegant and fresh spirit. Serve between 8-10°C.

CLIMATE

2014 started with a relatively hot and dry spring leading to an early start to growing period. The summer conditions were similar to 2013 (minus the hail) and pre-2000 without any water stress nor excessive heat and particularly cool nights that slowed down the ripening. We had some rain in mid-harvest that made it challenging to reach optimal ripeness and concentration on the late ripening varieties. Overall the wines are a little more light and fresh in style.

VINES

60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Rolle, 5% Cinsault.

HARVEST

Hand harvested at 50hl per ha.

WINE-MAKING

Each parcel is vinified separately; short skin contact at 15°C; grapes were pressed with early separation of pressed must; tight cold static must settling; temperature control of fermentation at 16-17°C; racking and blockage of malolactic fermentation.

MATURING AND BOTTLING

4-5 rackings; early fining with bentonite; filtration; blending; stabilization and non-sterile filtration; bottled in the spring.

TASTING NOTES

A luminous litchi pink. An intense fruity and complex nose – mango, white peach, little red berries – some floral notes – white flowers. A lot of presence in the attack with beautiful freshness. Fruity aromas especially the little red berries are very present. The finish is persistent and surprising with some hints of fennel offering a slightly savoury finale.
