Chateau Unang Rosé 2013 AOC Ventoux

rose 2013

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

Tasting Notes :  A subtle pink rosé with a glint of almost blueness. Its core-of-a-strawberry colour marries with cherry aromas. The red fruit theme continues with wild strawberries in the mouth and ends with a clean finish. Typically for the wines of Chateau Unang there is a lively start given by its natural acidity – resulting in much appreciated freshness.


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 280 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 (15-18°C) 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.
