Nectar - White
2012 is an unusual vintage. After a relatively mild autumn, the spring was colder than usual, and disturbed by an episode of hail which slowed the maturation process, while allowing an expressive vintage. It is characterized by a nice maturity, well rounded, refined and warm wines.
50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Semillon, 10% Rolle.
Manual harvest at 50hl/ha.
Each parcel is vinified separately. Cold skin contact maceration, pressing with separation of free-run juice from pressed must, cold static must settling, temperature control of fermentation at 17-18°C,
racking and blockage of malolactic fermentation.
4-5 racking, early fining with bentonite, filtration, blending, stabilization and non-sterile filtration, bottled in the spring.
Clear peach rosé, with beautiful silver glitters. The nose is refined and aromatic, with aromas of yellow peach, citrus fruits and a nice minerality. The mouth is round, with volume and notes of peach. The final is fruity and crunchy with a nice length. A well balanced wine, between roundness and freshness.
Mullet, appetizer, Provencal dished, vegetables stew.
