A spicy and refined rosé with scents of red fruit - such as raspberry - and a light spiciness. Excellent with charcuterie meat salads and fish dishes.
Arjolle follows the trend of lighter salmon-colored rosé. This winery adapted the way of making wine by harvesting the syrah grape earlier and pressing it lightly immediately after arrival (less color extraction). Cabernet Franc grapes are harvested later and soaked for six hours including skins before entering the grape press.
Very distinctive for this beautiful rosé is that 30% of the harvest ripens for six months in oak. During that period, the keg is regularly stirred so that the yeast remains come into contact with the wine. This technique (bâtonnage) ensures a round, full flavour.
In the spring, Arjolle assembles this part with the syrah that has been kept at low temperature in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled and fitted with a screw cap to retain freshness. Making a beautiful example of modern wine in combination with old techniques. The result is a nice mix between the typical Languedoc and Provencal style with refined fruit scents and an elegant dry taste.
