Traditional winemaking by saignée - the French term meaning "bled", for a
wine-making technique which results in a rosé wine made by running off or
"bleeding", a certain amount of free-run juice from just-crushed dark-skinned
grapes after a short, prefermentation maceration.
Clearly a wine from a warm place, the color is an intense pink
with bright reflections. The nose is fresh, of redcurrants and yellow
raspberries. The mouth is supple with fruity roundness in the middle, and
a lively finish that is quite long.
Pair with any summer foods or Mediterranean dishes.
A perfect pairing would be grilled pork ribs with white peach and verbena
