2016 Gilardi Rose Mediterraneenne Vin Pays du Var

Fine, delicate and bright, this elegant rendition offers attractive aromas of red apple, cranberry, lemon peel and floral with a touch of flinty complexity. The palate is light and juicy, delivering elegantly fruit weight and intensity, finishing persistent and crisp-dry.

DESCRIPTION
  • Here, we're in absolute classic rosé mode, with a beautiful wine built on Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Made by the Gilardi family (who date back to 1906, can't you tell by the old school label?), this has that perfect balance of light strawberry fruit and soft acidity that makes it a struggle to have just one glass bottle.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The Côtes de Provence appellation extends over more than 20,000 hectares in 3 French departments: the Var, Bouches du Rhône and an enclave in the Alpes Maritimes, grouping together 84 communes.

    The climate is predominantly Mediterranean (sunny, hot and dry), but may vary a great deal depending on the topography and influence of the sea. The vineyards also benefit from the Mistral wind, which clean the air and eliminate parasites.

    The "terroir" (site-specific soils and climatic conditions) of the Côtes de Provence appellation is formed by complex geological features. Two major geological formations coexist: limestone in the Northwest and crystalline in the Southeast.

    The entire northwest portion of the Côtes de Provence vineyards is comprised of alternating hills and rocky limestone hogbacks that have been sculpted by erosion. Further east, along the sea, the Maures and Estérel crystalline rock masses emerge, which were partially formed by volcanic eruptions.

    Beautiful colour with pastel shades. Light, fruity and aromatic. Grenache Cinsault Syrah

    Tasting: An ideal wine for picnics and sea trips

    Grapes: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah


    TASTING NOTES

    Such a balanced little rose. Spritz, rose petals, strawberry, musk and a great crunchy, red apple like acidity. There aren't many Rose's that can touch this wine for price, quality and overrall package.
