AOC Ventoux (France), Rosé 2011

Fruit and freshness. Ideal as an aperitif or with a meal with friends.

Presentation

The vintage
The 2011 vintage is a vintage of contrasts. That is to say an unusually hot, dry spring followed by a wet and rainy beginning of July and then an Indian summer lasting until the end of October. Carefully sorting and destemming the harvest allowed for a great vintage, particularly for the late harvest varieties.
Description
Perrin Ventoux Rosé has everything you would expect from a good rosé wine. Fruit, freshness and a beautiful colour. Ideal as an aperitif or with a meal amongst friends…
Situation
Situated on the slopes of the Mont Ventoux, the vineyard benefits from a cooler climate than down in the plain. The grapes mature slowly and maintain a good acidity level. The wine is rich, fresh and balanced.
Terroir
Sediment left by the seas of the Tertiary period at the base of the chalky Mont Ventoux. Red Mediterranean soils originating from cretaceous hard chalk, calcareous debris and round stones from old alluvium.
Process
Bleeding in stainless steel tanks
