Chateau Unang Rose 2014 AOC Ventoux

rose label 2014

rose back label 2014

Grape Varieties : Grenache, Syrah, Cinsualt (with yields of 35hl/hectare, hand- picked). Organic.

Tasting Notes : A pale rose petal colour with a glint of peach. This core-of-a- strawberry colour leads to wild strawberries and lychees on the nose. In the mouth it’s citrus fruits, pomelo being the closest (something between a grapefruit and a lemon from Corsica), then gooseberry. Thirst-quenching with the usual freshness, there is also a minerality on the finish.

Terroir : The grape varieties at Unang used for our rosé are positioned around the chateau itself, they benefit from good exposure to the sun ensuring ripe fruit. The soil is free-draining, clay-limestone soil (with the emphasis on limestone), at around 28o metres above sea level.

Wine-making : The Cinsault and the Grenache were left in contact with their skins before pressing, while the Syrah was pressed straight after being picked. The fermentation took place at cool temperatures (15-18ºC) over two weeks in stainless- steel.

Notes : Serve chilled, whenever the urge takes you – but best to be consumed over the coming months, either with food or by itself.
