Rose - Maia - Cotes de Provence - France
A Reflection of Provence… From ancient vineyards in the heart of Côtes de Provence appellation, MAÏA is sourced from some of the finest sites in the region. Made via a joint collaboration of two Masters of Wine: Liam Steevenson and Mark Pygott this is original, special wine and an exciting new brand.
From the vine through wine making to the glass itself, no expense is spared to ensure the finest wine reaches the consumer. In the vineyard, particular attention is paid to site-specific planting, with each variety grown on the most appropriate part of the Estate, allowing it to reach its full potential. Grenache is the most widely planted grape, prospering in the deep, almost stone free ground. Being southeast facing, the vineyard is directly influenced by the nearby Mediterranean Sea. The wines therefore offer a subtle character brought about by the sea air.
A beautiful pale salmon pink colour, MAÏA is an incredibly elegant Côtes de Provence rosé with layers of fruit balanced by refreshing vibrant acidity. The bouquet is eager and intense with orange peel and red currant aromas. The palate carries these flavours through with a soft roundness and a freshness on the finish.
