Mont Rocher Rosé Vielles Vignes, IGP Pays d'Oc, France, 2019
Southern France, with its multifarious regions, indigenous grapes, cultures and traditions is home to some of the most exciting, characterful wines in the world at present.
Mont Rocher is a collection of wines produced from indigenous varieties, produced in a style that lets them clearly express their varietal typicity and sense of place.
Fruit sourced from vineyeards in the Roussillon located near the southern edge of the St Chinian.
The grapes are checked throughout August, in order to choose the right day to harvest. Once harvested, the grapes undergo a skin-contact maceration to extract some colour from the skin. Then, the juice, is collected after a delicate pressing and fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel.
No oak treatment
This is a dry pale pink rosé, similar in style to a provence rosé. Soft red berry fruits, strawberry and raspberry flavours are supported by deliciously fresh acidity.
Tapenade or a salade Niçoise, a paella or grilled chicken, fish or lamb with herbs.
