"Delightfully refined and elegant, the bouquet shows apricot, oatmeal, lemon peel and dried flower aromas, leading to a finely flowing palate that's beautifully rounded and persistent. Attractively savoury and wonderfully structured by crisp acidity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2022
Pale pink in colour, sitting well within the classic Provence “pale and dry” spectrum. The nose is lifted and expressive with perfumed aromas of pink florals, red berries, subtle herb and minerals. The palate is fresh, vibrant and fruitful with savoury notes delivering a fine, even, long finish of strawberries, rose petal and fresh herbs.
This wine has been crafted in collaboration with the family estate from Provence, Vins Chevron Villette. The grapes come from the famous ‘Golden Triangle’, in Saint Tropez, inland between Puget‑Ville, Les Arcs and Le Thoronet Abbey, which was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. Le Thoronet is known for its clay‑limestone soil, while Puget‑Ville & Les Arcs are of Argilo‑siliceous soil.
The grapes were completely whole bunch fermented, with a short maceration of only a few hours. This was enough to impart fantastic colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice was given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment to almost complete dryness. Maturation on lees in stainless steel then added texture. Malo-lactic fermentation was prevented to ensure vibrancy.
The third vintage of this wildly popular premium Rosé comes from the South of France and has been crafted in partnership with a family estate from Provence, Sarah Jessica Parker and Invivo. Samples were couriered from France to Sarah Jessica in New York, and to Invivo’s Tim and Rob in New Zealand. The trio then spend an afternoon together, virtually, tasting and perfecting the final blend.
Food Pairing: Perfect chilled as an aperitive with Picholine olives or as food wine with grilled fish, salad and goat cheese. Try a glass alongside a classic caesar salad (go heavy on the anchovies!) or the classic French dish grilled lamb with ‘herbes de Provence’.
