Mont Rocher Vieilles Vignes Rosé, IGP Pays d'Oc, France, 2022
Over the last two decades we’ve been creating wines in the wilds of southern France
Embarking on adventures; exploring, discovering and rediscovering remarkable places and vineyard sites. From the foothills and valleys beneath the iconic Pyrénées, out through the gorges to the coastal areas of the Mediterranean. We’ve journeyed with our friends and exceptional growers, who excel at their craft and have an inherent respect for the land that they and theirs are a part of. It is these people and places that inspire our winemaking. The wines of Terres Fidèles are designed to express the spirit of this extraordinary place - old vine Grenache, Carignan, Malbec, Cinsault, Viognier and more, that are authentically crafted, small batch wines of the wilds.
Cinsault grapes are harvested from selected sites in the heart of the Languedoc, between the Black Mountains and the Canal du Midi. It is here some of the most outstanding Cinsault is grown and crafted to display purity of fruit and a distinctive 'goût de terroir'.
The grapes are checked throughout August, in order to choose the right day to harvest. Post- harvest, the grapes undergo skin-contact maceration to extract soft pink colour from the skin. The juice, is collected after a delicate pressing and fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel.
No oak ageing
Delicately pink from gently pressing the grapes, they have created a soft, juicy and refreshingly dry Rosé crammed with red berry fruit flavour.
Tapenade or a salade Niçoise, a paella or grilled chicken, fish or lamb with herbs.
