2023 Marin Gris de Gris Rosé, IGP Sable de Camargue

£10.75 inc. VAT

A delicious, pale and versatile rosé from the sandy Camargue. This wine is produced in the beautiful and rugged Camargue in South of France. The Camargue is a wild and natural environment surrounded by abundant wildlife including flamingos and the world-famous wild white horses. The famously sandy dune soils of Camargue have been deposited by the sea and the wind. These are poor soils, almost devoid of silt and clay. Free-draining and mobile, they have prevented the encroachment of phylloxera since the late 1800s. The grapes are grown on two plots, L’Abbé and Les Sablons. Machine-harvested and refrigerated before a light pneumatic pressing to achieve a delicate wine with as little oxidation as possible. Several rackings and cold settlings are carried out before fermentation. Fermentation is slow and cool, lasting two to three weeks.

Delicious ripe peach and melon, with a twist of pink grapefruit zest and the freshness of a sea breeze. An enchantingly pale, copper coloured rosé – even more sophisticated looking than its chic cousins from Provence – with a lovely weight and texture across the length of the palate and a dusting of Southern French spice. Great with lightly spiced dishes but equally delicious sipped in a sunny garden with a bowl of olives.
