This wine was made with red grapes that were whole cluster
pressed and fermented without skins or seeds as if making a
delicate white wine. Fermentation took place in one small
stainless steel tank at 50-58F for 45 days before completion.
The use of Bandol yeast in the winemaking process imparts a
delicious Provencal nuance to the wine.
The Color is a beautiful shade of pink.
Just picked strawberries, tropical passion fruit, orange zest
and sweet ruby-red grapefruit burst through in the mouth. Crisp,
pure and aromatic with a long mouthwatering finish.
