Après la Pluie rosé 2018

Grape varieties
70% Carignan, 20% Grenache, 10% Muscat
From vineyards in and around the remote village of Tuchan in the Languedoc, southern France. 
The grapes are picked mid september. The skins are left for 6 hours in contact with the juice to extract just the right amount of colour before being gently pressed and fermented slowly at low temperature. 
Tasting note
A delightfuly fresh, dry rosé wine with refreshing citrus flavours from the carignan grape and ripe fruit from the muscat adding just a hint of sweetness.  

Drink well chilled with crisp green salads, cold roast chicken and a little sunshine.
