An attractively pale, fresh, crisp and clean southern French Rosé. The grape used here is Piquepoul Noir and is the dark-skinned sibling of the white grape used in the popular Piquepoul de Pinet. Indeed you'll be able to pick out some of the similarities in character. With a very pale pink color it has delicate aromas of crushed rose petals with lemony notes that follow through onto the crisp and dry palate with great fresh strawberry and cranberry red fruit flavors.
Though only 250 acres of this rare grape remain, Piquepoul Noir has been grown in Southern France for centuries. It is originally from the Languedoc and is one of the 13 grapes permitted in Châteauneuf du Pape. Ours is produced from one grower’s 5 acre hillside vineyard in Cazouls.
