Le Rosé 2016

Lapostolle

We envisioned a Rosé inspired in the French Provence with a delicate salmon color and a charming nose of fresh fruit & spicy aromas.

About the Vineyard

It exhibits a semi – arid Mediterranean climate with a winter – only rainfall pattern. During the growing season, we have warm and dry days and pleasantly cool nights as a result of cold breezes coming from the Andes Mountains.  Chile has also a cool influence from the Pacific’s Humboldt Current. The current lowers temperatures in the coastal areas,  leading to warm days with ample sunlight and dry conditions, allowing for a slow ripening period.

Wine Production

Le Rosé is sourced from a selection of the best lots of Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. All grapes were harvested earlier in the season to keep high level of acidity
and a fresh fruit expression. The grapes are carefully pressed and the free run juice is  decanted naturally at low temperature. All fermentations were made in stainless steel tanks, between 14Cº and 16Cº. The wine was stored for 3 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. 

Tasting Notes

Color: Clean pale salmon color.
Nose: Fruity and floral notes such as strawberry and red rosebuds.
Mouth: Fresh, unctuous and juicy mouthfeel.

Food Pairing

Serve ideally with aperitif, fresh salads, fish and seafood. Will also do well with bittersweet and spicy dishes such as ricotta cheese and chives empanadas and Turkish apricot with bacon. Serve from 9 to 11°C (49 to 52°F).
