Castelmaure rosé 2014

Corbières AOP

Castelmaure, a very special terroir. The village nestles high in the Hautes Corbières, at an altitude that encourages true southern elegance. Geologically the arid soil is based on black schist and limestone which means harvesting has to be by hand.


Vinification

Hand-picked into small crates then 2/3 hours maceration in the press follow by clarification, flotation and fermentation at 16°C.


Tasting Notes

Eye: Beautiful crystal pink color.

Nose: Aromas of ripe fruits.
