Domaine de Triennes Rose 2015
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, went in search of new vineyards. Their attention turned to Provence where they were convinced the potential for great wines was enormous. After a long search, they discovered the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside with southern exposure. They saw its cool microclimate and its clay and limestone soils as ideal for viticulture. The estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus, which was held every three years during Roman times. The prefix "Tri" serving as a reminder of the three original partners.
Grand Cros L’Esprit de Provence Rose 2015
In the heart of Provence, the Faulkner family nurtures their vines on hills that benefit from a unique microclimate and favour hand-picking, optimal expression of the “terroir” and environmentally sustainable farming. Dry and fruity, this rosé will seduce you with its tender, elegant and fresh spirit. Pale litchi colored rose with peach reflects. The nose is refined and complex, with aromas of grapefruits, wild strawberries, mango and melon. The palate is round, generous and fruity (white peach and melon). A suave and fruity wine with a long finish.
Ferrages Cotes du Provence Rose 2014
Made from a blend of 40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. This beautifully perfumed dry rosé is from vineyards in the heart of the magnificent Massif des Maures mountains in Provence. Farmed and made by the owners of Chateau Mont-Redon from Chateauneuf-du-Pape this wine benefits from the attention and know-how of generations of high quality winemaking. It has a pale salmon pink colour, intensely perfumed berry and provence herb aromas. Fresh and intensely flavoured delicate red berries on the palate with a crisp, dry and refreshing finish. One taste and you will understand why Provence rose (and Riotor especially) is so popular!
Riotor Cotes de Provence Rose 2015
The vineyard is planted with the classic varieties for the region of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah together with a little Rolle (Vermentino) which is blended into the delicately coloured and very fragrant rose. Both the rose and red wines are aged in temperature controlled stainless steel to keep the freshness of both the aromas and the fruit so typical of the wines of this region. These are wines made to drink for their freshness and they perfectly suit warmer climates like Provence and also the coastal regions of Australia. Little wonder that these wines are finding such a ready and accepting home all around Australia.
