Cinsault Rosé

LAgnostique_Rose_sm.jpgWinery: L'Agnostique
Southern and Central France

Site: Languedoc, near Narbonne

Grapes: 100% Cinsault

Fermentation and Aging: Harvest at full maturity, 4-6 hours on the skins to extract just the right amount of color. Temperature controlled fermentation, followed by elevage in vat on the fine lies. 

Notes: For a rosé that is not from Provence, this wine shows perfect Provençal onion-skin color. The aromatics are fresh and vibrant with beautiful notes of wild strawberry, and on the palate the wine shows surprising weight and finish, along with zesty acidity.

Pairing: Try it with charcuterie, with fish especially fried or grilled, or with shrimp. Grilled or roasted pork. Have it with salad, with starters, or as an aperitif. This delicious wine is a perfect “crossover” for dishes that lean in between - not quite right for red or white. Roast turkey or pizza.
