Domaine de la Verriere
Verriere Ventoux Rose 2015
(55% Cinsault, 45% Grenache). “I prefer the finesse” he says while during our visit he invites visitors to share the tasting. “It is fruity, with notes of pink grapefruit and wild strawberry displaying roundness and lightness at the same time on the palate. What a beautiful persistence too !”. This is definitely a sunny rose and combine perfectly with summer dishes.
Coming from vineyards averaging 25 years and trained with spurred cordon. Soil here is prevalently clay and yields are up kept moderate with 50 hl/ha. After the soft pressing, skin maceration lasts for 5 days and then fermentation starts with controlled temperature. The cuvee is assembled roughly during the first half of November and produced in 31.000 bottles and 400 magnums. Lovely to pair with grilled shrimps skewers or any kind of exotic salad. Capable to age for a couple of years from the vintage.
