The Rosé project is from vineyards dedicated to Rosé, the fruit is hand harvested as if to produce a white wine with high natural acidity, hence no added acid in the cellar.

In The Cellar
Crushed and pressed, leaving the skins soaking for an hour or two. This infuses the delicate copper salmon colour unique for Grenache and a cold fermentation in stainless tanks ensures an elegant wine.
