UP Small All Awards.png
Extremely pale, vivid pink. Bright, racy and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry and orange zest scents and a suave fl oral overtone. Dry and light on its feet, offering tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors and a tangerine quality that builds as the wine opens up..90 Points

Tasting Notes

Color: A bright and shiny pink rosé with hints of rose gold.

Nose: Fresh and youthful aromas of wild strawberry, white blossoms and raspberry with hints of white pepper from the Syrah grape.

Taste: Juicy and well-structured, this dry rosé offers tart cherry and floral notes with minerality and some spice on the finish

Terroir

The Ultimate Provence vineyard spans 100 acres around the town of La Garde Freinet, at the northern foot of Notre Dame des Anges chapel. Set in wild countryside and bordered by a vast evergreen oak forest, the vineyard is characterised by shallow soil, laid on a waterproof subsoil sandstone slab. This excellent terroir is nourished with a natural compost of oak leaves and vine stalks. The plots are marked out with grassy areas.
