Question to the winemaker
What is the technical cunning behind this ample, easy-drinking rosé?
- First of all it is the combination of two techniques used to very gently extract colour and aromatic components: direct pressing and a very brief skin maceration lasting 36 to 48 hours. Secondly, it is vinification at a very low temperature (as for white wines) with a specially selected yeast strain.
