2021 Peyrassol 'La Croix de Peyrassol' Rosé Méditerraneé Provence
Winemaker Notes: Beautiful pale pink in color, with distinct bluish hues. This expressive blend opens immediately with notes of small red fruits carried on a savory undertone of garrigue. There is a refreshing touch of greenness on the palate which gives this fresh, lively wine its truly thirst-quenching character. An accessible blend in the true style of Provençal rosé: delicate with flavors of white fruit and a hint of minerality.
With a long history of producing Provençal wines, the Commanderie de Peyrassol has broadened its offering using fruit from its IGP classified vineyards around the Coudonnier area and completed with sourcings from local partnerships. The winery produces this rosé with the goal of creating a more accessible wine with a focus on quality and freshness.The 2020 season began in spring with regular rainfall until mid-July. Until the beginning of August, the water stress remained moderate. With the summer heat, the soils of the plateau as well as the hillside (where our Rolle and Syrah grow) became relatively tense. Yet, the temperature variations between the cool nights and hot days helped reach a well balanced acidity. The seasonality favored a very active ripening leading to harvest taking place a week earlier than in 2019. The wines are mature and well-balanced.
