Rosé lovers, stock up for summer! Bertaine and Sons have come up with their best vintage yet of this Provence style dry rose. Pale pink in colour, the bouquet opens to enticing sweet fruit and floral aromas. Light and delicate with a soft mouthfeel, sweet berry fruit flavour develops through the palate, concluding with an elegant, lingering finish.
From the Producer
The vineyards of the Aude Valley are planted in the foothills of the Pyrenees, alongside the river that flows down to join the Canal du Midi at Carcassonne. The 25 year old, low-yielding vineyards benefit from high elevation and cool evenings to create elegant and varietally expressive wines.
Made solely from Syrah and given a short maceration (a few hours) sufficient to impart colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice is given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment to almost complete dryness. Maturation on lees in stainless steel adds texture and malo-lactic fermentation is prevented to ensure vibrancy.
Bertaine et Fils is a range of modern varietal wines sourced from the cool-climate Aude Valley and named in honour of one of the region’s most prominent grape growers.
