Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir and 20% Mourvèdre

With a brilliant violet tint, the 2006 Domaine de Nizas Rosé reveals an expressive bouquet mixing red berry fruits, marshmallow notes and minerality. On the palate, the aging on the lees brings a fuller mouth feel that balances the dryness. This cuvée is a refreshingly crisp wine that embodies the Domaine's style of finesse, elegance and complexity.

This powerful and elegant Mediterranean wine will be the ideal partner to a lamb tajin with candied grapes and almonds or braised duck with licorice sauce.

About Domaine de Nizas:

Domaine de Nizas is the new winemaking collaboration from John Goelet and Bernard Portet, co-founders in 1972 of Clos du Val in Napa Valley, California. John Goelet is also the owner of Taltarni Vineyards (Victoria, Australia) and Clover Hill (Tasmania).

On a manually tended 200 acre vineyard, they've created handcrafted limited-production wines since 1998. Their goal is to serve as a model in terms of elegance, complexity, balance and aging ability among Mediterranean wines.
