Rose - Domaine Sainte Marie - Cotes de Provence - France
Domaine Sainte Marie
The Domaine Sainte Marie covers over 40 hectares, all of which is organically farmed.
The vines’ average age is 25 years old and they benefit from the hot dry weather of the summer months of the south. Harvests are performed at night when the grapes are at their coolest to retain the delicate flavours that are desired.
Their rose is a complex blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and a touch of Cabernet, which all helps to ensure the style and quality is achieved year after year. It is a pale, salmon pink in colour with fine aromas of red fruits and spice.
The cool Mediterranean breezes enable the grapes to retain wonderful freshness with lovely notes of raspberries and whiteflowers. This dry wine is wonderfully delicate and on the palate the red fruits are backed up with some flinty notes.
