Chateau Saint Martin is a 15th Century, family owned estate in Provence. The vineyard holds a mythical status in the region, and produces some of the greatest Rose's from Provence. It is classified as Cru Classe, the highest possible ranking for Provence Rose.
It's a light, dry style Rose, perfect as an aperitif, or to match with white meats. Expressive and lifted on the nose, it's a complex and layered wine with a delicate acidity and crisp finish.
A blend of Grenache, Tibouren, Cinsault, Carignan, and Syrah.
After harvesting, the fruit is left to soak for 6 hours to extract a light blush colour, then pressed off skins. Fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a short maturation in the estate's underground cellar.
Pale pink colour, with aromas of wild strawberry, light cherry notes and subtle layers of savoury herbs. The palate is fresh and bright, with crunchy red fruit acidity and blood orange characters, finishing crisp and dry.
Chateau de Saint Martin is one of the most premium producers in the appellation of Provence. Its vineyards are overlooked by a large Chateau built in 1740. The original site was a priory of the monks of Lerins, with the old cellars underneath still intact and dating from the 12th century. The vineyards of Chateau de Saint Martin sit at an altitude of up to 130 metres, and lie at the junction of two distinct geological zones, offering an unique terroir. Classified as a "Cru Classe," Saint Martin produces some of the finest Provencal Rose in the world, as well as other reds and whites in smaller amounts.
